Mega plan taken to turn Bangladesh attractive tourism destination

Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister AKM Shahjahan Kamal yesterday said the government has been working sincerely to turn Bangladesh as one of the attractive tourism destinations of the world by utilizing its potential and natural beauty, reports UNB.

He said the government has taken a mega plan to boost the tourism sector with higher presence of domestic and international tourists. The Tourism Minister was addressing a rally at TSC intersection in Dhaka University campus marking the World Tourism Day 2018.

The colorful rally started from Matsya Bhaban intersection at 8:30 am and ended at TSC intersection in Dhaka University campus.

DU Vice Chancellor Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman, Civil Aviation and Tourism Secretary M Mahibul Haque, Bangladesh Parjatan Corporation Chairman Akhtaruzzaman Khan Kabir and DU Tourism and Hospitality Management Department Chairman Dr Md Bodruzzaman Bhuiyan, among others, spoke at the rally highlighting the importance of the day.

Members of the Tour Operators Association of Bangladesh, Aviation and Tourism Journalists' Forum of Bangladesh (ATJFB), a platform of journalists covering aviation and tourism affairs, Bangladesh Tourism Board (BTB), Bangladesh Parjatan Corpora-tion and other stakeholders took part in the rally.

The government and different organisations have chalked out various programmes to celebrate the day.

President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate messages marking the day.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called on governments to support digital technologies that can transform the way people travel, reduce the ecological burden of tourism and bring the benefits of tourism to all.

"Digital technologies have brought a positive momentum to societies and economies around the world.

They've connected us on a global level, helped to empower the most vulnerable and become our crucial allies for sustainable development," he said in a message marking the World Tourism Day that falls on September 27.
