SANGSAD BHABAN, Nov 21, 2012 (BSS)

Leader of the House and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said Bangladesh was branding the traditional Jamdani/Zamdani sharee abroad to tell the international community that ‘it is absolutely a Bangladeshi product.’

“This is true I wear Zamdani mostly when I visit abroad to brand our product,” she said replying to a question of treasury bench member Gazi Golam Dastgir during a question-answer session in the parliament.

Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh is facing competition as neighboring countries are also trying to brand Zamdani as their product.

“We are in a competition with other countries and trying to brand Zamdani as our product,” she said adding, “Zamdani is our product and we must have to achieve international recognition.”

The Prime Minister said the government already has a plan to expand weaving industry including Zamdani and the plan would be expedited.
