Dr Atiur Rahman’s policy prescriptions are most often reflected in the national policies as he always remains aware of the socio-economic realities, said State Minister for Religious Affairs, Faridul Haque Khan Dulal.
The state minister said it on Monday while speaking as the Chief Guest at an event to unveil the vook titled “Ore Mon Hobei Hobe: Bangabandhu, Rabindranath and Samakalin Bangladesh” by Dr. Atiur Rahman.
The event was organised at the office of Unnayan Shamannay in the city, according to a press release.
Eminent sociologist Khondoker Shakhawat Ali; consultant for Bangla Prokash- Rahim Shah; and Director of Sonali Bank- Ishtiaque Chowdhury were present as panel discussants at the event.
The programme was moderated by Zahid Rahma, Coordinator of Unnayan Shamannay.
Khondoker Shakhwat Ali said columns written by Dr. Atiur that have been compiled in the said book will benefit policy makers, researchers, and even young readers.
Ishtiaque Chowdhury opined that Atiur worked for the marginal people as the governor of the central bank, and his writings are still inspiring the youth to work for the poor and marginalised.
Dr. Atiur Rahman thanked everyone and said that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is leading the amazing macroeconomic journey of the country in alignment with Bangabandhu’s development philosophy.
He said that through his columns in the national dailies he is trying to portray Bangladesh’s success stories and challenges and ways forward.
