President Mohammed Shahabuddin today (December 3) asked the graduates of National Defence Course (NDC) and Armed Forces War Course (AFWC) to contribute to national development.
"In this era of globalization, efficient and smart manpower are a must to continue development spree . . . You (NDC, AFWC graduates) should help build your nation and develop country through knowledge gained from the training courses," he said.
The President was addressing a graduation ceremony of NDC and AFWC courses in Mirpur Cantonment's National Defence College (NDC) in the capital.
He said in view of rapid expansion and development of ICT and changing global situation, the government is responsible to meet the hopes and aspirations of the people and nation.
Noting that 'a higher position usually comes with the higher responsibility', he said the acquired knowledge about policy-making, security, war strategy and development through the trainings would usher the graduates to the right direction.
