Coordination needed to improve the service quality in tourism: FBCCI President

Daily Bangladesh Tribune »

The tourism industry of the country is growing rapidly. Hotels, motels, resorts, and tourist spots are being developed in the country to fulfill the growing demand. There is no alternative to coordination and integrated participation among the entrepreneurs of this sector and the related govt. and private institutions to improve the quality of services in tourism.

The FBCCI President Md. Jashim Uddin opined this in the 3rd Meeting of the FBCCI’s Standing Committee on Tourism Development (Inbound, Outbound, Domestic & Civil Aviation) at FBCCI.

While speaking as the chief guest, Md. Jashim Uddin said, ‘tourism is very promising sector of the country’s economy. While there are some problems in this sector, there are many possibilities as well. We have to work more closely on these issues.’ He urged tourism-related associations to play a more active role.

He also emphasized on ensuring better services for foreign tourists as well as local tourists. Md. Jashim Uddin urged the entrepreneurs to organize a seminar on the tourism sector with Tourism Corporation, NBR, related ministries, and other stakeholders.

FBCCI Vice President Md. Amin Helaly said, apart from attracting foreigners to the tourism sector in Bangladesh, it is also a big market for the country’s large population. To ensure the discipline and coordination of this potential sector, the participation of all government and private sectors (including associations) who work in tourism is essential. He also mentioned that, on the occasion of FBCCI’s 50th-anniversary celebration, the three-day-long ‘Bangladesh Business Summit’ exhibition is to be held in March next year. The tourism sector will be highlighted in the exhibition.

While moderating the discussion, the Director-in-Charge of the Standing Committee on Tourism Development (Inbound, Outbound, Domestic & Civil Aviation) M.G.R. Nasir Majumder said that tourism is always one of the priority sectors to the prime minister. The meeting was presided over by the Co-Chairman of the Committee Jalal Uddin Tipu.

FBCCI director Hafez Harun, Bijoy Kumar Kejriwal, Abu Hossain Bhuiyan (Ranu), Akkash Mahmood, former director Khandaker Ruhul Amin, Secretary General Mohammad Mahfuzul Hoque, Co-chairmen and all Members of the Standing Committee were also present in the meeting.
