Marine resources must be used to develop the national economy: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

Marine resources must be used to develop the national economy: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said, “We have the opportunity to use the sea resources for economic development. The Bay of Bengal is a very important sea. Many businesses of the world operate from here. Hence our right here is very important.

Moreover, the security and economic development of those living in the coastal areas is important to us. With this in mind, we want to use the sea resources for our economic development.”

She spoke this in a virtual program when she commissioned ten new ships of the Bangladesh Coast Guard from the Ganobhaban this Sunday (November 15th).

The ten vessels commissioned are two offshore patrol vessels (OPV) BCGS Mansur Ali and BCGS Kamruzzaman, five inshore patrol vessels (IPV) BCGS Sabuj Bangla, BCGS Shyamal Bangla, BCGS Sonar Bangla, BCGS Aporajeyo Bangla, and BCGS Swadhin Bangla and two Fast Patrol Boat (FPV) BCGS Sonadia and BCGS Kutubdia and BCG Base Bhola.

Apart from Ganobhaban, guests, including senior officers of Patenga Coast Guard in Chattogram, were also present at the commissioning ceremony.

Sheikh Hasina said that the Coast Guard had gone one step forward with these ten new vessels.

The Prime Minister said, “We have been working on the infrastructural development of the Coast Guard since we came to power in 1996.”

“Since 2009 we have been working on more extensive development. Including 27 Coastal Crisis Management Centers, 55 infrastructures have been constructed.

In the last 12 years, 55 ships and vessels have been built for the Coast Guard in various sizes. Our own training base has been built. We want to make our Coast Guard modern and up-to-date”, Sheikh Hasina added.
