Efforts on to ensure smooth power supply at affordable price: Nasrul

State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid on Sunday said the government is working to supply electricity smoothly and speedily at affordable prices along with ensuring clean energy.

“Bangladesh is progressing fast and to maintain this trend, we need uninterrupted power supply in the country,” he said, speaking as the chief guest at a workshop at a local hotel in Dhaka.

Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry, Monash University and RMIT University jointly organized the two-day workshop on ‘Power and Energy Sector Infrastructure Development and Management’ in association with Department of Foreign Trade Affairs of Australia.

Chaired by Professor of Monash University Quamrul Alam, the workshop was moderated by Power Cell Director General Engineer Mohammad Hossain.

Australian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Julia Niblett spoke at the programme as the special guest while Power Division Secretary Dr Ahmed Kaikaus delivered the welcome speech. Energy expert Engr Saleque Sufi and high officials were present at the workshop.

Chancellor of Central Queensland University John Abbott spoke on coal-fired power plants and the future global scenario while Vice-Chancellor of Central Queensland University Professor Scott Bowman and Monash University Professor Julie Wolfram Cox delivered their speeches on the subject.

The state minister said the country needs skilled and efficient manpower to build the next developed Bangladesh.

“This manpower could be built through improved training programmes,” he said, adding 90 officials of power and energy sector received training funded by Australia.

He said the country is marching forward with a vision of development under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, as the people will enjoy the facilities of a developed Bangladesh facility by 2041.
