Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has lauded Walton’s tremendous progress and described the home-grown company as a mirror of Bangladesh.

“Walton is a mirror of emerging Bangladesh. Anyone who sees Walton factory, they see the emerging Bangladesh as well as feel the Bangladesh’s real industrial progress,” the minister said after visiting the plants of Walton Hi-Tech Industries Limited (WHIL) at Chandra in Gazipur on Saturday.

Walton is a sophisticated state-of-the art industry. Its working environment is very well, he noted.

Earlier, WHIL’s Vice-Chairman S M Shamsul Alam, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Golam Murshed and Director Sabiha Jarin Orona welcomed the foreign minister and other guests at the factory complex with flower bouquet.

Expressing his reaction on the factory visit, the foreign minister said, “We can be proud to say that we have not only made infrastructure development but also built state-of-the-art and sophisticated industries.

“I have seen factories in many countries including America, Japan but I have rarely seen such an advanced environment like Walton.

Walton’s entrepreneurs knew in advance what the future might be. It is exemplary for other entrepreneurs,” he added.

Meanwhile, WHIL MD and CEO Golam Murshed thanked the foreign minister for visiting the factory. He said Walton will be a partner of the government’s vision of reaching Bangladesh a developed country by 2041.
