Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen today said Sylhet Development Authority will be established through enacting a law to ensure planned development of Sylhet metropolitan area.
“Expansion work of Sylhet metropolitan has started already and there is significant progress. It will be possible to see a planned development once Sylhet Development Authority is established,” he said.
To make that happen, Dr Momen said, they need a law in place urgently. The minister was addressing a discussion on “Sylhet Development Authority Law (draft)” at Foreign Service Academy.
State Minister for Housing and Public Works Sharif Ahmed presided over the meeting.
The initiative was taken to establish Sylhet Development Authority through a law for converting Sylhet metropolitan as a modern and attractive city, ensuring planned development.
The meeting urged all to give written suggestions, if any, on the draft law by the next 10 days. The draft of the law has already been prepared.
