Textiles and Jute Minister Golam Dastagir Ghazi said that ‘Dhakai Muslin House’ will be set up for a large scale commercial production of Bangladesh’s golden tradition Muslin.
He said this while addressing a meeting at the conference room of his ministry at the secretariat here today, said a press release.
The minister said a plan has been taken to build a ‘Dhakai Muslin House’ on the land of Jute Fiber Glass Industries at Tarabo in Rupganj upazila in the outskirts of Dhaka.
