Our industrial sector is facing a critical period at this moment. This sector needs to be diversified. Export should not be dependent on a few products and services. We have ample opportunity to develop our agro-based industries as we have an agrarian economic structure. It will help absorb our large unskilled and semi-skilled workers. We have achieved great development in sectors such as pharmaceuticals, RMG, shrimp, leather etc. We have a very large workforce which is the most important ingredient for our economic development. The world is turning into a more knowledge based, technology oriented economic structure. All the outsourcing and manufacturing activities are shifting to the developing countries like India and China. As we are the neighbour of India and China and we have the same cultural framework like India, why will we not be able to grab those opportunities. So, the govt. should provide proper guidelines, required infrastructure, power and energy. Proper planning and management programmes should also be undertaken and implemented by the govt. so that more employment opportunities are created which will ensure productivity and economic development.
