Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today called upon the country’s economists to formulate their plans, policies and programmes considering the local people and reality.

“My expectations from the economists are that you will think about the people of the country and plan your policies,” she said.

The premier made this call while inaugurating the 22nd Biennial conference-2024 of Bangladesh Economic Association (BEA) at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) in the city’s Ramna area.

Mentioning that the advice from foreigners won’t be fruitful in the country, she said, “Someone will come to the country (from abroad) for a day or two and give us advice, but that advice will not be fruitful to us.”

She added, “It will be useful which you see with your own eyes, and work for people. This will be useful. So that’s how you set your policy…”

She went on saying, “Yes, we will learn from outside, but while doing it, we will do it by looking at our own country, by looking at our people, and by looking at what resources we have.”
