As the Chairman of the Times Group and, on behalf of the Board, I would like to take the liberty of sharing a view with you.
I have always believed, Bangladesh holds an enviable position in the world, when it comes to leisure travel. One interesting fact is: if someone from abroad moves within a radius of around 200 km from a certain point, he or she will notice a palpable change in Bengali spoken-language and the visitor will also note a slightly different hue in the socio-cultural texture.
This is about time, when we all in this trade, could plan out and proceed ahead with our newer travel concept, particularly, to increase the in-bound traffic of tourists.
It would help accelerate the growth of the sector, as a whole. And subsequent cash-generation in convertible currencies would make the Government's coffer look tangibly healthy.
With this vision in mind, in 1983, the Times Group of Companies began its journey with 300 sft office space and a six-member workforce. The path we trode and attained this current stature, has been an arduous one and filled with challenges.
Today, many years down the road, when I look back, I can see how, this organization stands distinctively, as a leading Travel and Tourism Company. Meanwhile, we have branched out to other businesses, the most recent one being Times ASL Call Centre, having an ISO certification.
As about customer satisfaction, whatever good reputation the Group has earned, it could be attributed to cherish the corporate policy of Honesty, Sincerity and Pro-activeness.
Before concluding, I take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to all in the Government, Non-Governmental Agencies and individuals - at home or, in abroad, and all the companies in this sector.
I also pray to the Almighty Allah for our beautiful country to prosper and its noble-hearted people to be secured and happy
