On the event experts also said, Every year more than 5000 textile engineers are being graduated from these institutions. However, the shiny sector needs more attention from the government as these textile graduates could contribute more to the country’s development.
The inclusion of separate cadre in BCS (Bangladesh Civil Service) through the recruitment of Bangladesh Public Service Commission (BPSC) has been a long cherished demand of the textile engineers of the country. Textile engineers who are leading such a big industry have all their capacity to lead the public services by working in different important positions. While these engineers are one of the most talented people in the country, the government is not getting proper service from them as there is no separate cadre in BCS for textile engineers.
