Sheikh Yusuf Haroon said that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina proposed to Bhutan to create an economic zone. Agreeing to that proposal, Bhutan took the initiative to create a special economic zone in Kurigram, Bangladesh. A memorandum of understanding has already been signed between the two countries in this regard.

According to district administration sources, 133.92 acres of land in Char Madhabaram village on the east bank of Dharla river in Kurigram Sadar Upazila along the Kurigram-Bhurungamari road has been handed over to Beja for setting up an economic zone. For this, preparations are underway to acquire another 86 acres of privately owned land. The distance from Sonahat land port of Kurigram to Bhutan is 150 km. As a result, goods can be transported easily on this route. Apart from this, initiatives have been taken to make this special region more dynamic by linking the activities of Chilmari seaport in the district.

Private industrialist and former Member of Parliament of Kurigram-2 Constituency Panir Uddin Ahmed said that river erosion and unemployment are one of the biggest problems of Kurigram. Unemployment is increasing day by day due to non-development of industrial areas in the district. If the Bhutanese Special Economic Zone is established in Kurigram, the people here will get employment and the standard of living will increase.
