Bankers-farmers relation a must for boosting farm output
Speakers at a training session on banking put emphasis Monday on bankers-farmers relations for making grass root level bank operations success.
They also viewed that the effective banking activities could be the means of boosting agricultural productions that may lead to food security in the country’s northwest region.
They were addressing the inaugural session of a six-week foundation training course for the newly appointed senior officers and officers of Rajshahi Krishi Unnayan Bank (RAKUB) at its training institute here.
RAKUB Managing Director Pradip Kumar Dutta addressed the session as the chief guest while Director Prof Dr Rustam Ali and Deputy Managing Director Abu Hanif Khan spoke as special guests with principal of the institute Mozammel Haque in the chair. The speakers said the loan disbursement activities should be more need-oriented and pro-farmers so that the target groups especially the farmers and the other concerned could derive the benefits of the lending programme properly.
They highlighted the importance of the Bank in agricultural development of the northwest Bangladesh and asked the participating officers to acquire knowledge from the training and properly apply those in the professional fields for boosting agricultural productions.
As the largest development partner in the agricultural sector of the northwest Bangladesh, RAKUB plays a vital role to earn economic emancipation and free the nation from poverty and hunger through boosting credit-flow to the potential agricultural fields, they added.
In this regard, they asked them to discharge their duties with utmost sincerity and honesty to brighten the image of the Bank.
