BB governor for creating entrepreneurs to achieve goals

GOPALGANJ, Mar 11, 2017 (BSS) - Bangladesh Bank (BB) Governor Fazle Kabir today urged the next generation to become entrepreneurs and set up self-employed industrial units for taking forward the country's economy towards the development goals of Vision-2021 and Vision-2041.

"We can build the country as a developed one within 2041 through creating more entrepreneurs," he said while addressing as the chief guest a conference on school banking at Swimming Pool and Gymnasium Auditorium in the district.
