'DAM to play vital role to build modern, smart Bangladesh'

RAJSHAHI, May 9, 2024 (BSS)-The Department of Agricultural Marketing (DAM) will play a vital role towards building a developed, modern and smart Bangladesh.

There is no alternative to smart agriculture to build smart Bangladesh as seven of the total 17 Sustainable Development Goals are linked to agriculture.
Commissioner of Rajshahi Division Dr Dewan Muhammad Humayun Kabir came up with the observation while addressing a workshop titled "Role of DAM to build Smart Bangladesh" here today as chief guest.

The DAM Regional Office organized the workshop at its training room. The  
DAM Deputy Director Shahana Akhter Jahan and Assistant Director Shahnaz Parveen also spoke on the occasion.
Dr Humayun Kabir said the DAM has been established for smooth agricultural marketing supportive to the producers, sellers and consumers together with improving the agricultural trade and business.

So, the DAM and others concerned should come forward and work together for overall development of agricultural marketing.
Small and marginal farmers need direct access to the markets for ensuring fair prices of their agricultural products.
To this end, time-fitting steps should be taken for linking each and every of the farmers to the markets. Utmost emphasis should be given on arranging group marketing through formation of farmers organizations based on the selected areas.

Commissioner Dr Kabir said establishing market linkage between entrepreneurs and farmers has become an urgent need so that the fair price of the agricultural products is ensured to the farmers.

He also said the entrepreneurs with their own efforts are playing vital role towards development of the country's economy.
Within this view, Shahana Akhter Jahan said the DAM has adopted a project for generating 20,000 entrepreneurs through boosting their capacity. 

They will work directly for producing various exportable agricultural products, including mango, jackfruit, potato, tomato and aromatic rice, she added.
