Record number of foreign ships arrive at Mongla Port in December
A record 87 foreign ships arrived at Mongla port in December 2017, after 80 had arrived in November. Currently, there are 34 ships anchored in and around the port, which faced a myriad of difficulties from 2001-2008 before emerging as a significant economic actor for Bangladesh. According to a press release, Mongla Port incurred losses in the 2004-2005 fiscal year, and only 95 foreign ships docked at the port in the entirety of FY2007-2008. Now, it is Bangladesh’s second busiest sea port and has been integral to the economic development of the country, particularly in the south and south-western region. The upward trend for the port began in 2009, after the government took charge. Due to several initiatives to develop and modernize the port which have since been implemented, it has become significantly more efficient leading to the record number of foreign arrivals. Mongla Port Authority Chairman Commodore AKM Faruque Hassan said: “This success is a combined result of the high-tech development initiatives of the government, unerring directions from the Ministry of Shipping, professional port management, sincere efforts of port officials, workers, and those who use the port”
