Festival of The Golden Fibre

The National Jute Day was observed for the second time with the slogan: Sonali Asher Sonali Desh, Pat Ponne Bangladesh. Parts of the capital were decked out in jute promotion. Jute, also known as the golden fibre, was once the country's highest foreign currency earner. Now, a revival is in the offing. Jute's uses have been diversified over the years. The government formulated Jute Act-2017 for the development of the fibre. Jute Diversification Centre currently has 233 types of jute products. This year, jute saris were heavily promoted during The National Jute Day, a testament to the fibres' versatility.
