Dhaka Chamber President Ashraf Ahmed said in the welcome speech of the program that the contribution of Old Dhaka to the country's GDP is about 20 percent. But business activities in the area are hampered by inadequate infrastructure, traffic congestion and inadequate services. Especially the traffic situation in that area has reached an unbearable level.

Ashraf Ahmed said that such a situation of traffic jam has been created due to potholes on the road, illegal occupation of sidewalks, unplanned car parking and ineffective traffic management. He said, as a result, the cost of business has increased a lot. On the other hand, about 140 crore working hours are being wasted in the capital every day due to traffic congestion.

Dhaka Chamber has made several proposals to overcome such a situation of traffic jam. These include introducing smart traffic systems, ensuring parking facilities, increasing the use of riverways, clearing sidewalks of illegal squatters and introducing one-way traffic systems on the main narrow and busy roads of Old Dhaka.
