Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said she hopes Bangladesh Navy to be a commercial manufacturer of warships in the future and earn foreign currencies alongside creating jobs.

“Bangladesh Navy will be able to be a commercial manufacturer of warships in the days to come. This, in turn, will flourish the home-grown technologies by which we may earn foreign currencies. This will eventually create jobs and establish Bangladesh as a self-reliant nation in the world,” she said.

The prime minister said this while addressing the President Parade-2019 marking the passing out of the Midshipman-2017, A Batch and the Direct Entry Officers (DEO) 2019 or Bravo Batches of Bangladesh Naval Academy (BNA) at the academy parade ground on Sunday morning.

She urged the newly-commissioned officers of Bangladesh Navy to discharge their responsibilities with honesty, sincerity and devotion as they are oath-bound to do so, reports UNB.

Sheikh Hasina also asked them to brighten the country’s image by performing their duties with proper leadership and sacrifice.

A spectacular parade was arranged on the occasion.

The prime minister inspected the smartly turned-out parade from on an open jeep.
