The National Textiles Day-2022 will be observed in the country on Sunday with the theme “Let’s use local textile products, build golden Bangla”.

The Ministry of Textiles and Jute has taken an elaborate programme to mark the day, according to an official release.

President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate messages on the eve of the day.

In his message, President Hamid said, “The textiles sector is playing an important role for rural poverty alleviation, women empowerment, employment generation and foreign currency earnings.”

After the Independence, he said, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had taken and implemented different policies and programmes for the textiles and jute sector in an attempt to make the sector a ‘boom’.

Following the path of Bangabandhu, the present government formulated ‘Textile Policy 2017’, ‘Textile Law 2018’ and ‘Textile Industry (Registration and One-stop Service Centre) Regulations, 2021’, he said, adding that the textile and jute ministry is running nine textile engineering colleges, 11 textile diploma institutes and 41 textile vocational institutes to develop skilled manpower for the textile sector.

The president said the history of textile industry in Bangladesh is very old and glorious.

Dhakai Muslin and Jamdani, Tangail’s Weaving, Cumilla’s Khadi, Rajshahi’s Silk and Mirpur’s Benaroshi are deeply rooted in history, tradition and culture, he added.

“We hope that the sincere efforts of all concerned will continue to spread these traditional products in the international arena,” he hoped.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, in her message, said Bangladesh has glorious reputation in textile industry and after independence, Bangabandhu, the greatest Bengali of all time, had taken steps for the development handloom industry in the country.

Following the footprint of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mubijur Rahman, the present Awami League government made pledge in its election manifesto for building the textile sector as a strong and competitive one, she added.

She said the Department of Textiles has been entrusted with the responsibility of providing support and necessary services to the textile industry and its stakeholders.

The government has been working relentlessly to apply all facilities of the 4IR in the textile sector and face challenges, she said, adding that the Ministry of Textiles and Jute has been setting up and operating technical education institutes at different levels to create skilled manpower in this sector.

The premier hoped that all stakeholders involved in the textile sector will play an effective role for ensuring the development of this sector by maintaining mutual cooperation.

Thus, the ‘Sonar Bangladesh’ as dreamt by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman will be built, she added.
