'If Bangabandhu's philosophy implemented, Bangladesh could surpass many countries'

RANGPUR, March 18, 2023 (BSS) – Bangladesh Economic Association (BEA) President Dr. Abul Barkat has said Bangladesh would have surpassed many contemporary countries in terms of economic standards if Bangabandhu had lived and his philosophy had been implemented.   
“Philosophy of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is a combination of his vision, state thought, philosophy of life, social philosophy, political philosophy and economic development and progress,” he said. 
The noted economist said this while delivering the ‘Bangabandhu Memorial Speech’ titled 'Bangabandhu-Philosophy: Theory, Application and Prospects' held at Begum Rokeya auditorium of RDRS Bangladesh here today. 
“If Bangabandhu's philosophy is implemented properly, there will be no discrimination in the society and the population will be transformed into manpower to ensure socio-economic development of all people,” he added.

BEA General Secretary Professor Md. Aynul Islam took part as the main discussant while Dr. Abul Barakat delivered his expert opinions in the seminar.
