Fourteen projects including ‘Bangladesh e-Passport and formulation of automated border control management’ project valued at Tk 4500 crores has been placed before the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) meeting for approval.

The projects were presented at the 26th ECNEC meeting of the 2017-18 fiscal year, held at the National Economic Council conference room in Dhaka on Thursday, with ECNEC Chairperson and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair.

The government has adopted this move aiming at coping with the outer world to make Bangladeshi passports safer and secured, increase passport acceptance and to ensure hassle-free movement of Bangladeshi citizens in the immigration check post.

Planning Minister Mustafa Kamal is expected to brief after the meeting.
