71 firms receive Nat'l Export Trophy

The government on Sunday (Apr 16) awarded national export trophies to 71 firms in 28 categories for their extraordinary performance in 2019-20 fiscal year. Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi handed over the trophies to recipient companies as the chief guest at a ceremony at InterContinental in the city, said a press release.

Senior Secretary at the Commerce Ministry Tapan Kanti Ghosh presided over the event. President of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) Md Jashim Uddin spoke at the programme as a special guest, while EPB Vice-Chairman AHM Ahsan delivered the welcome address.

In his speech, Tipu said with the concerted efforts of all, the business and commerce of the country will go forward to new horizons.

“Innovation of new products and services will enrich our export basket. Adequate foreign exchange will be earned and ultimately Bangladesh will be transformed into a self-reliant smart country,” he added.

He said Bangladesh produces world class medicine and exports it to many countries of the world including Africa.

“Apart from medicine, Bangladesh is achieving reputation by exporting many other products. Bangladesh has been able to create its own brand in the global market,” he added.

He expressed hope that Bangladesh will achieve excellence in trade in this region very soon.

Among the exporters, Universal Jeans Limited received the ‘Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Export Trophy’.

Some 28 gold, 25 silver and 17 bronze trophies have been given to the remaining 70 firms, representing 28 sectors.

The export earnings in the fiscal year 2019-20 stood at $33.67 billion braving the shocks of the Covid-19 pandemic.
