- About Me
Md. Shahriar Alam had a brief, albeit successful career in readymade garments sector after finishing his MBA from Institute of Business Administration, Dhaka University in 1993. Mr. Alam’s varied experience in the apparels industry took him various continents of the world. He has visited in the United States of America, Australia, United Kingdom, Canada, Russia, India, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Indonesia, Egypt, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Peoples’ Republic of China, Kenya and the United Arab Emirates. As a successful entrepreneur, Mr. Alam’s achievements do not end there. Soon after leaving the job sector, Mr. Alam founded his first venture, a buying house named Araf Apparels. Later as he garnered requisite experience, Mr. Alam branched out into diverse enterprises. He formed a freight forwarding company named SF Cargo Ltd. Mr. Alam also successfully completed the first CAPSTONE Course at NDC. Work towards earning peoples’ trust and confidence that will ensure Awami League’s predominance in Rajshahi district for the foreseeable future. Develop the railway network all over Bangladesh so that it may be transformed into a safe and affordable means of transport for the general populace. Eliminate poverty through employment generation in greater Rajshahi district and greater Bangladesh by establishing heavy industry and social programs that have far-reaching impact. Work towards reducing spiralling commodity price hike in own constituency and beyond to keep it within purchasing power of people by increasing production of domestic products and tackling syndication and other unethical business practices such as hoarding of goods. Restore unto the people a just society by re-establishing rule of law. Extortion will be tackled so that people may live their lives in peace while businesses may flourish without hindrance. Corruption will be stopped in its tracks through multi-pronged measures and specific actions will be taken to stop the taking of bribes by public officials. My long term vision for the country is to free it from poverty by working towards building a country where its citizens may live lives of dignity and prosperity with all citizens living in a society free of intolerance; where all Bangladeshis may be assured of social justice, environmental protection, human rights and equal opportunities and democratic institutions and values are instilled into all its people; where Bangladesh will have graduated to a middle income country with poverty reduced significantly, a workforce that is skilled and where development will have reached double digit growths annually.
