Speakers at a meeting in the Bangladesh capital on Saturday said most government measures taken to protect rivers and strengthen the river transport sector are positive but slow in implementation.
 
Green Club of Bangladesh, an organization working on environment and citizen rights, arranged the discussion with Mohammad Shahid Miah, president of the National Committee to Protect Shipping, Roads and Railways, in the chair.

“It’s essential to expand the shipping system further through the efficient use of natural rivers so that common people become more dependent on waterways and less dependent on roads… we need to popularize waterways,” said Dr Mir Tareque Ali, a professor of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Department, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet).
