Bangladesh Reconditioned Vehicles Importers and Dealers Association (BARVIDA) urged the Mongla Port Chairman to issue ‘port pass’ for its members.

The BARVIDA leaders made the request while exchanging views with the Mongla Port Authority (MPA) Chairman Riar Admiral Mohammad Musa on Monday.

They thanked the port authorities for ensuring a high-powered security system in the port, and also for operating joint inventory to control the missing of car parts at the port.

They also urged the port authorities not to increase wharf rent "during this critical economic situation."

BARVIDA emphasised speedy dredging of Poshur river so that big ships could

land in the port as vehicle imports surged after inauguration of Padma Bridge.

The delegation led by its BARVIDA president Md Habib Ullah Dawn include vice presidents and the executive members.

They expressed gratitude to the MPA chairman for the all out cooperation provided at the port.

The MPA chairman expressed his thankfulness for BARVIDA’s contribution in revenue generation. He accepted the BARVIDA proposals warmly and assured of implementing those as soon as possible.

High officials of the Mongla Port Authority were present at the meeting.

BARVIDA Joint Secretary General Belal Uddin Chowdhury, Treasurer Mohammad Anisur Rahman, Publication and Publicity Secretary Md Jashim Uddin and Cultural Secretary Jobaer Rahman also attended the meeting.
