‘Cox’s Bazar will be developed as a special economic zone and a special tourist spot’
Planning Minister AHM Mostafa Kamal yesterday said the government will develop a special economic zone in Cox’s Bazar considering its tourism and economic potentials.
“Cox’s Bazar will be developed as a special economic zone and a special tourist spot,” the minister said while visiting the marine drive project in the sea beach town.
A marine drive road is being constructed between Cox’s Bazar and Teknaf to develop the district’s tourism and economy.
Mostafa Kamal said Cox’s Bazar didn’t get proper attention of the international tourism though it is blessed with the world’s largest sea beach.
The 84-kilometer marine drive project will be completed by December 2015, he said, adding the city will be the most potential place of the country’s economic development in next five years.
