Land Minister Saifuzzaman Chowdhury Jabed MP said that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has taken various steps
to create women entrepreneurs in the country. Women are being supported with money and training to become
self-reliant. The Prime Minister thinks that half of the country’s population is women.

This assistance will continue only if the Awami League government is in power in the future. Otherwise it will be closed,” he said.
