Nation to embrace New Year with fresh hope on past achievements

DHAKA:  The national is ready to embrace the New Year 2017 today with much enthusiasm and happiness, and bracing the hope for a brighter future for individuals, family, society, country and the whole world as well.

The island nations of Kiribati and Samoa are the first countries to celebrate the New Year while Hawaii is among the last ones.

This is due to their position immediately west of the International Date Line, which determines the start and end of the time zone cycle.

On this special occasion, people have already conveyed their best wishes to their friends and beloved ones through greeting cards and using different messaging applications and social media platforms.

Corporate, government officials and various organisations also did the same thing as they do every year to greet their nearest ones.

The day is also a moment of looking back to the outgoing year for reviewing the successes and failures and planning strategies to reach new goals for the New Year, with accomplishing the unfinished tasks those need to done in the coming days.

The year 2016 was a significant year for Bangladesh as the country saw many successes in major areas including the politics, economy, agriculture, combating terrorism and driving the IT sectors towards attaining the middle-income status.

The outgoing year was a stable and peaceful year for the political arena as there was no big agitation like hartals, blockades and other destructive activities that the whole nation witnessed in the past years.

The peaceful political situation prevailed for the entire year and offered the country’s economy grows faster than ever, setting newer records in many macro-economic indicators.

Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) data showed that he annual growth rate of GDP (gross domestic product) hit the highest ever record at 7.11 percent in the outgoing year when the per-capita income surged to $1465, also the record high.

According to Bangladesh Bank, the point to point inflation was 5.38 percent in November, which was close to the target of 5.8 percent for 2016-17 financial year.

The reserve also hit a record nearing $32 billion in 2016, which was enough for meeting the country’s six months’ import cost.

Agriculture sector also showed robust growth in 2016 when the farmers of the country produced staple food-grains not only substantial for meeting the domestic demand, but also enough for exporting.

The country stood 3rd in global vegetable and the 4th for fish productions. Besides, the record productions, stable and reasonable prices made both the farmers and the consumers happy in the outgoing year.

With all the major economic indicators performing strong in the outgoing year 2016, the economy is showing prospect of maintaining the steady growth pace in 2017, according to central bank’s economic adviser Dr M Akhtaruzzaman.

The country also made a significant footprint in combating terrorism in the outgoing year that was lauded worldwide. Like in the past few years, the country maintained the strong pace in driving the IT sector a major means for development and ensuring better public services to people.

The country received the prestigious ITU Telecom World award for its Bangabandhu Satellite Project.

Sajeeb Wazed Joy, information and communication technology adviser to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, conferred upon “ICT for Development Award, 2016” in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the people of Bangladesh through implementation of “Digital Bangladesh” initiative.

The World Organization of Governance and Competitiveness and three other organisations introduced the award this year, marking the 71st session of the UN General Assembly.

On this strong background, the nation will be celebrating the New Year with the hope and enthusiasm of making a better future for the nation.

During the New Year celebration, strengthened security measures will be enforced in the capital and elsewhere across the country for a smooth celebration of the thirty-first night, the last spell of time approaching January 1, 2017.

The whole capital will be brought under security blanket with the deployment of as many as 10,000 members of law enforcement agencies both in uniform and plain cloth on the 31st night in Dhaka to avert any untoward incident,” DMP Commissioner Mohammad Asaduzzaman Miah said.

No activities go against our culture, values and heritages of our country won’t be tolerated in the name of 31st night celebration,” he told journalists.
