Utilise Ctg's products to establish port city as tourism hub : Mayor Rezaul

- A Monitor Report Date: 01 June, 2024

Dhaka : Chattogram boasts all kinds   of tourism products including hills, sea, historical sites, indigenous communities, religious locations and many others. Even with such immense potential, these products  are all currently  underutilised. Therefore, to establish  Chattogram as a tourism hub, the government and the private sector should work together to   tap  the  great possibilities the port city offers.

Rezaul Karim Chowdhury, Mayor of Chattogram City Corporation said this at the inauguration ceremony of the three-day fair "Chittagong Travel Mart 2024" held at Peninsula Chittagong Hotel on May 30-June 1, organised by the travel trade publication The Bangladesh Monitor
