Recounting his own story, Kamal said “I did not have any money. The villagers helped me with money to carry on my studies"
Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal today said nobody will go to bed hungry by the year 2030.
"There will be no poverty in the country by then," he said while highlighting the government's achievements and activities during an event titled "Listen to Leader" today in the capital.
"I believe the dreams for 2030 will be fulfilled and the vision for 2041 will be implemented in the hands of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina," he added.
Urging to keep faith on the government, the minister said Bangladesh is now the most suitable place to invest.
"We are preparing our country and will exceed Malaysia and Singapore by 2024."
Recounting his own story, Kamal said "I did not have any money. The villagers helped me with money to carry on my studies. They had faith on me and I valued their trust."
He also said he had been suspended twice for political involvement during his student life.
"But I did politics from a place of faith and never tolerated any injustice. I believed that Bangladesh would not lag behind despite going through many adversities. And I have become successful based on that belief."
In his welcome speech at the event, Farooque Ahmed, president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Bangladesh, said the finance minister had proposed the Chartered Accountants act.
"But we want to keep the 1973 act with the amendment," he said, urging Kamal to consider their demand.
