"Industries Ministry will work with businessmen to build a modern, happy-prosperous, and golden Bangladesh by 2041," she added.

Mahbubul Alam said in addition to accelerating industrialization by formulating appropriate industrial policies, the Ministry of Industries is providing important contributions to reform the state-owned enterprises, developing SMEs and small and cottage industries, protecting product quality and intellectual property rights, creating skilled manpower in the industrial sector and enhancing competitiveness.?
