Bangladesh Jeweller’s Association (BAJUS) has increased honour of gold traders in last one year providing shield for doing business from any challenges, said a central leader of the organisation.
“I served BAJUS for long time. However, there were not many developments then. The current president Sayem Sobhan Anvir has improved the situation for developing dignity of the gold traders by a revolution,” said MA Wadud Khan, former president of BAJUS, at a view-exchange meeting in Gazipur on Saturday.
Some six hundred jewelers participated in the view-exchange meeting of Gazipur district unit held at Joydebpur Convention Center in the district.
BAJUS assistant secretary and Gazipur district unit convenor Shamit Ghosh Apu presided over the meeting while executive members Tazul Islam Lavlu, Bablu Dutta and Aslam Khan were also present on the occasion.
BAJUS district unit former president Azhar Ali appreciated the dynamic leadership of Sayem Sobhan Anvir to strengthen bonding of members of the organisation.
