As Chairman, it gives me immense pleasure to learn that Bangladesh Krishi Gobeshona Endowment Trust (BKGET) is conducting it’s business with appropriate guidance of the Board of Trustees. Bangladesh Krishi Gobeshona Endowment Trust started with a fund of Tk.350 crore (Three hundred fifty crore) only in 2008 which has now grown in a substantial size. The Board has already taken steps to facilitate a well focused future funding of need based agricultural research. In the meantime a sum of tk. 5 crore (five crore) only already been released in favour of Krishi Gobeshona Foundation (KGF).
