The Padma Bridge inspires both confidence and trust.
While it is good that Bangladesh will be inaugurating the long-awaited Padma Bridge soon.
What is better and the fact that the authorities are already making plans about getting the most out of this project.
Bangladesh is planned to receive a new Economic zone.
And a hi-tech park centring on the Padma Bridge as has recently been announced.
The Padma Bridge has been constructed with the express purpose of linking.
The southwest of the country to northern and eastern regions.
With one of the goals of better connectivity being boosting the volume of trade between the two regions.
To that end, the announcement of a new economic zone and a hi-tech park centring on the bridge.
Both pro-active and extremely timely.
There is no doubt that the inauguration of the bridge is going to result in the construction of industries.
And economic hubs on both sides of the bridge.
In building the economic zone and hi-tech park.
The authorities will be laying the groundwork for these industries and hubs.
And the authorities efforts should act as a beacon for FDA as well.
This will not only contribute to the economy of the country fulfilling one of the objectives of the Padma Bridge in the process.
But this will also lead to mass infrastructural development on both sides of the bridge.
Paving the way for the long-coveted goal of decentralization.
Of course, what we have now are just plans.
And everything essentially depends on how we execute those plans.
But the fact that the authorities have a long-term and strategic goal with the Padma Bridge inspires both confidence and trust.
The bridge to the future has been built, now we just need the fortitude to cross it.
