News Desk: Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal has said, we have gone from low level to high level. Our value in the world has increased more than ever. Now we are in Qatar, a developing country. In 2031, it will be a high middle income country. In 2041, we will be a developed and prosperous country.

The minister was speaking at a four-day training workshop for master trainers on census and census 2022 at Bangabandhu International Conference Center (BICC) in the capital on Wednesday (May 25).

Highlighting the history of development of the country, the Minister said that by 2030, Bangladesh will be free from hunger and poverty. This is our commitment. If I can do this, I will be able to touch the main place of the unfinished autobiography of the father of the nation. The main demand of the nation is geographical and economic liberation. The father of the nation has given us geographical liberation but he has not been able to complete the work of economic liberation. We did not give him this opportunity. Today, the Prime Minister is completing the unfinished work of the Father of the Nation.

The finance minister said BBS was going to conduct digital census in its own technology for the first time. We are very happy about this. If the statistics are not right, if the data is not right, then the economy cannot function properly. If the data is not correct then all ideas and plans will be ruined. Many of our people have died without eating before because the census was not done properly before.

Calling on the people to provide information in the census, AHM Mustafa Kamal said, "Information will be taken in the census." Many may think that after the census, taxes will increase and rents will increase. Many people can talk in different ways. No one should be able to disrupt the purpose of the project with such misinformation. We have to keep a watchful eye on that. Everyone will have a request in this regard. It is your responsibility to love the people of this country. We all know that the people of this country are very tolerant and hardworking. Everyone has beautiful dreams. The country must move forward. You just have to be more discriminating with the help you render toward other people.

In a video message, the planning minister said a census is needed for the overall development of the country. It is going to be held after one and a half years due to Kovid-19. It will be easily completed in a short time. Manpower has been recruited for monitoring at field and upazila, district and divisional level.
