Dibrugarh: A 10-day workshop on the paper cover, envelope and file making, organized by RSETI (Rural Self-Employment Training Institute), United Bank of India, Dibrugarh Branch began on Thursday.
Speaking at the event, one of the chief guests, Dr Chitra Jyoti Chetia highlighted the growing scope for paper bags given the worldwide movement against the use of plastic bags due to its non-biodegradable character. In a bid to encourage and empower the women present, he also spoke on the women being the fulcrum of a family and also on the changing roles of women in the modern age. Senior journalist Ikbal Ahmed, another chief guest at the event, said that since the days of plastics bags were numbered if the trainees ran their venture of paper bags nicely and industriously, could meet not just the national demand for paper bags but also export them to international markets. He also asked them to be innovative and not to get bogged down or dispirited by a false sense of inferiority complex. Ahmed, at the same time, urged the trainees not to treat the bank loan itself as profit but to use it judiciously and intelligently, multiply their profits and repay the loan.
