Dhaka, Nov 14, 2020 (BSS) – Experts at a virtual seminar called for formulating a policy to promote local entrepreneurs in power and energy sectors.

Energy and Power Magazine arranged the seminar titled “Challenges and Possibility of Utilizing Resources in Infrastructure Development.
Energy and Power Magazine Editor Molla Amzad moderated the seminar.
M Tamim said local entrepreneurs should be given protection side by side with the international contractors. Otherwise, they (local contractors) will not be able to compete in the sector by giving 35 percent duty.
