Golam Murshed, managing director and chief executive officer (CEO) of Walton Hi-Tech Industries, has opined that the country is moving forward under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
She aims to make this country a developed one by 2041 and has been honored with Sustainable Development Progress Award. We should not only look at the government. Let’s do something successful from our own position. Then we will be a self-reliant nation.
Golam Murshed came up with the remarks at the unveiling ceremony of the book titled ‘Swadhinotar 50 Bochor: Dinbodole 50 Nari Agradut (50 years of independence: 50 women pioneers in the changes) held at the FBCCI Icon Auditorium in Dhaka on Saturday (October 30, 2021). Women Entrepreneurs Network for Development Association (WEND) organized the event.
Education Minister Dr. Dipu Moni was present as the chief guest while Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi as the special guest.
FBCCI President Jashim Uddin, Walton Hi-Tech Industries Limited Director Tahmina Afrose Tanna and Giant Textiles’ Director Sharmin Islam were among the distinguished guests with President of WEND Nadia Binte was in the chair.
Dipu Moni said that main identity of women is that they are human being. Women have to overcome the obstacles in front of them with their own strengths and abilities. Women must be brought forward beside men in a bid to implement potentials of the world and Bangabandhu tried to establish a nondiscriminatory society.
Tipu Munshi said Walton has inspired us in many ways. Salman F Rahman visited the Walton factory days ago and I also went there. We are overwhelmed to see such a beautiful factory. We will visit the Walton factory with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina one day as it is more beautiful than it imagined. Walton has been exporting products in various countries as we expect a lot from them.
Golam Murshed also said that mother, mother tongue and the motherland are our emotions. We are now celebrating 50 years of independence. We have got three women at the highest level-Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury and Education Minister Dr. Dipu Moni. When women lead in a country, there is no need to give any other example of women’s success there.
Golam Murshed appreciated the Entrepreneur Project. “I hope that the WEND will soon launch programs like Bangabandhu Innovation Grant (BIG) with women entrepreneurs,” he said.
