Latest News Ad: A Unique English Grammar, a most useful language book containing almost all ground rules of English, is available with the writer (mobile: 01779477091).                    Make is followed by bare infinitive in active voice but to-infinitive in passive voice: We made him do it. He was made to do it.                    English Language Tips 2: Write `law-and-order situation`, NOT `law and order situation`, When you write simply `law land order`, there is no need for using hyphen, as there is no need to make it a compound word. In the first instance, law-and-order is made into a compound word to create an adjective to qulify the noun situation. In the second, the phrase law and order is not followed by any such NP and so you need not use such hyphenated compound as adjective.                    English Language Tips 1: Write `adviser to the prime minister`, NOT `adviser of the prime minister`.                    Write `adviser of the government`, NOT `adviser to the government`.

 Move to harness resources of blue economy in 5yrs: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said the government is taking initiative to start the extraction of marine resources in Bangladesh’s territorial waters in the Bay of Bengal within the next five years.

"Or else, there`s a fear of losing these opportunities. So, we`re trying to take steps fast," she said while addressing the inaugural session of the National Fisheries Week 2016 at the Krishibid Institution auditorium in the capital on July 20.

Citing the winning of maritime-boundary cases against India and Myanmar at international arbitrations, Hasina said Bangladesh has huge potential of fisheries resources in the sea which need to be extracted. So, the government has put emphasis on ‘Blue Economy’.

As Bangladesh has no experience of extracting resources from deep sea, an international tender was floated in this regard and four companies participated in the bid, she mentioned.

The premier also called upon the country`s businesspeople and exporters to maintain high quality, standards of their products and exportable to uphold the country`s image and maintain their own reputation.

She mentioned that laboratories had already been set up in Dhaka, Chittagong and Khulna to maintain the quality of export items, while steps taken to examine the exportable fisheries items to maintain hygiene.

Earlier, the PM distributed five gold medals and 15 silver medals among 20 individuals and institutions for their outstanding contribution to fish production in the country. Each of the gold medal recipients also received a Tk 50,000 cheque, while a silver medal recipient got a Tk 30,000 cheque.

Sheikh Hasina noted that Bangladesh currently ranked 4th in the world in terms of fisheries production from the sweet-water sources, and there is a very good chance to grab the first place if all concerned tool more care, considering the level of rivers, canals, beels, haors and water bodies the country have.

The PM also released fish fry into a lake inside the Ganobhaban to mark the National Fisheries Week 2016.
