Economy on track: Hasina
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said the country has been able to maintain the desired economic growth despite deepening global financial worries.
“Despite the global economic downtrend, the country has achieved the expected economic growth due to various pragmatic steps taken by our government,” she told the newly elected office bearers of Officers Club.
The office bearers, led by its ex-officio Chairman and Cabinet Secretary Muhammad Musharraf Hossain Bhuiyan and General Secretary Abu Alam Mohammad Shahid Khan, met the Prime Minister at her office.
Hasina said the government is moving ahead foiling all the conspiracies against the country by vested quarters. “Our path towards progress is not smooth, it's rather bumpy,” she said.
Hasina asked the government officials to work with honesty and sincerity for quick implementation of development programmes.
She said every government takes development progra-mmes in line with its election manifesto and the role of government officials is important in implementing those.
