BUILD Trustee Board Extended Gratitude to the Prime Minister’s Office for Formulation of National Logistics Policy

The Trustee Board of Business Initiative Leading Development (BUILD), led by its Chairperson Mahbubul Alam, paid a courtesy call on Tofazzel Hossain Miah, Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister, on 22 April 2024 at the Prime Minister’s Office. BUILD Trustee Board Member and Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry President Ashraf Ahmed attended the meeting.
The principal secretary to the prime minister said that we need to get out of the shell of traditional engagement methods with donors and other key stakeholders and stressed public-private engagement, capital markets, and foreign direct investment. We are proud to have held several consultations with private sector players while drafting and successfully formulating the logistics policy, which needs to be branded worldwide.
Mahbubul Alam, who is also the President of FBCCI, said that on behalf of the BUILD Trustee Board, I have the great pleasure of conveying our heartiest congratulations to the leadership of the Prime Minister’s Office for the formulation of National Logistics Policy on 8 April 2024. He underlined implementation, demonstration and coordination as the critical parts of the policy’s success. The formulation of the National Logistics Policy was the ask of the private sector, and we stand ready to extend support for the implementation of the policy, he said.
He reiterated that the Prime Minister’s Office and BUILD maintain excellent relations, which is marked by more extensive engagement in private sector development for the country. BUILD is formally engaged with PMO through the Private Sector Development Policy Coordination Committee (PSDPCC), which is the only strategic public sector platform for private sector-related policy review, coordination, identification of investment barriers and fostering public-private cooperation. He also requested the date of the next PSDPCC meeting, which will be held at the end of May 2024.
