The country’s jewellery sector will be stronger under the apt leadership of Bangladesh Jewellers Association (BAJUS) President Sayem Sobhan Anvir and a training institute will be established for hiking expertise of the goldsmiths.

Former BAJUS President Dr Dilip Kumar Roy made the statements speaking as the chief guest at a view exchange meeting with Bhola gold traders in the district on Friday.

Dr Roy, also the Chairman of BAJUS Standing Committee on District Monitoring, said that since Sayem Sobhan Anvir took charge, the gold traders of Bangladesh have woken up.

“Now there is hope. Earlier, the number of BAJUS members was eight to nine thousands in the whole country. But within just six months, the number of members has increased to 40,000. Bangladesh’s gold business and gold industry has entered a new golden age under the leadership of BAJUS President Sayem Sobhan Anvir,” he said.

Vice-president of BAJUS Standing Committee on District Monitoring Anwar Hossain, Assistant Secretary of BAJUS Standing Committee on District Monitoring Joynal Abedin Khokon, and executive member of the BAJUS central committee Pabitra Chandra Ghosh were the special guests at the meeting presided by the Acting President of BAJUS’s Bhola unit Zahidur Rahman.

General Secretary of BAJUS Bhola branch Abinash Nandi anchored the programme where Vice President of BAJUS Bhola unit Gopinath Poddar, and General Secretary of Daulatkhan Upazila branch of BAJUS Sumon Pratap Singh delivered their speech.

Speakers at the view exchange meeting said that gold traders have been in trouble for a long time as there was no specific gold policy in Bangladesh. In addition to the legal complications, there were problems at different times.

They thanked Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for formulating a gold policy.

The speakers also said that gold traders across the country have to come under the same shadow and must be a member of BAJUS. No one can enter the gold business without being a member of BAJUS. If any member of BAJUS gets into trouble, BAJUS will deal with it collectively.

At the beginning of the meeting chief guest Dr Dilip Kumar Roy was felicitated by the leaders of BAJUS’s Bhola district unit.
