“At present, Bangladesh has achieved unprecedented success in the field of power and needs more skilled manpower,” Nasrul Hamid added.
BPMI has been established to turn it to an international standard training institute, he added.
“Our distribution, transmission and manufacturing companies have gained much more capacity. Engineers also need to increase capacity,” the minister said, emphasising on skill acquisition as well as customer satisfaction.
"Everyone should take note that a customer does not come to get service and is not harassed under any circumstances," he added.
