Golden color is favorite to most of the peoples. I also like golden color. Also you may hear about the pride of Bangladesh which is named golden fibers. Yes I say about jute, which is so called.
Once upon a time it was the principle exporting goods of Bangladesh, most of foreign currency was earned from this sector before liberation, and it was sold as raw and finished goods. Not only it’s golden color but also its currency earning gives it’s so name. The environment of Bangladesh is suitable for cultivating it. Bangladeshi farmer cultivated jute with happiness but what is the present situation?
After liberation war of Bangladesh this sector starts to lose its past position. Day by day it was denied from different government. Different government took different policy for which this sector becomes unstable. For the lack of good policy it is now in such worst position.
A good governmental policy can bring this sector in its glorious position. I hope all the political party will give emphasis on this sector when they elected by the vote of peoples.
We know that jute is a natural fiber for this reason it is not harmful like others synthetic fiber for the environment. Once time peoples have been used jute goods for their daily uses. But when synthetic goods come to the people’s hand, they started to use it instead of natural fiber made goods.
Different jute goods are available in the market such as bag, sack, cvc etc. Also different types of Geo textiles are made by this jute. In China, they blend jute with cotton fiber to produce yarn which is used 4 making different cloth which is chief in price. I will discuss about this in my next blog.
Jute product is produce in jute mills. Two types of jute mill is available one is called twine mills which produce only yarn and export it other one is called jute composite mills where both yarn and finished goods are produce.
In here most of the jute mills are powered by private sector. There is a government corporation called Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation (BJMC). There are about 18 jute mills which are now running by BJMC. Millions people is involved with this sector. So government should consider it before take any harmful decision. I will elaborate it in my next post.
However, this sector has a great future.
