Nasrul asks engineers to contribute more in building environment-friendly Bangladesh

DHAKA, Sept 20, 2020 (BSS) – State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid today asked engineers to contribute more in building an environment friendly developed Bangladesh.

“It is necessary to work relentlessly for ensuring better services for consumers alongside their satisfaction,” he said while speaking as the chief guest at the closing ceremony of the foundation course of engineers through video conference from his residence Baridhara.

Bangladesh Power Management Institute (BPMI) organised the 50-working-day foundation course for newly-appointed engineers at DESCO.

The state minister said Bangladesh will be a developed country in 2041, adding, “We have to change our mindset in the context of developed Bangladesh.”

“Technology is widely used in developed countries. In our country use of technology is gradually increasing. If use of technology is increased, transparency and accountability will strengthen,” he said.

Nasrul said engineers will have to be more skilled in using technology along with leadership, adding, “Developed Bangladesh is just a matter of time if we work intellectually.”

A total of 57 newly appointed assistant engineers and assistant managers from DESCO joined the training course that started on July, 2020.

The entire course was conducted virtually with 11 modules.

Power secretary Dr Sultan Ahmed and chairman of DESCO board directors Maksuda Khatun spoke at the event presided over by Project Director of BPMI Mahbub-ul-Alam.
