President Md. Abdul Hamid has given the following message on the occasion of the Dhaka International Trade Fair-2018.
“I am happy to know that Export Promotion Bureau, under the auspices of the Ministry of Commerce is going to organize the 23rd ‘Dhaka International Trade Fair (DITF)-2018’. On this occasion, I extend my sincere greetings and congratulations to all the participants including local and foreign companies, exporters, importers and organizers as well.
The present government has been implementing various programmes to expand the volume of investment, expansion of trade and commerce to transform Bangladesh into a middle income country by 2021 and developed country by 2041. As part of the endeavour, DITF is a timely and effective step. I hope such arrangement will be able to play an important role in implementing the government’s multi-faceted economic plan and the rapid development of the economy.
The Dhaka International Trade Fair is not only a place of displaying and trading the products, but it has also become an entertainment center for the city dwellers. In addition to displaying products, it also plays an important role in building effective relations between domestic and foreign producers, buyer-seller, exporter-importer and investors. I hope DITF will be able to bring efficacy to the local economy through the diversification of products, market expansion and export growth. I hope the DITF’s arrangements will be more attractive through displaying quality goods and services.
I wish the 23rd ‘Dhaka International Trade Fair-2018’ a grand success.
Khoda Hafez, May Bangladesh Live Forever.”
