Referring the examples of Chine, Vietnam and Mongolia, Prof Mannan also said, Bangladesh has achieved self sufficiency in food and this was possible only for agricultural revolution. And this revolution has come into success due to contribution of Agri-researchers and technology experts.

While addressing as special guest Anis-Ud-Dowla, Chairman ACI Ltd said, to change the management system of Bangladesh agriculture, researchers, Scientists and entrepreneurs will have to work all together.

While addressing, Vice Chancellor of BAU said, BAU has been playing a vital role in development of agricultural sectors and the university is working to make the agricultural sector technology friendly and at this our agricultural system has modernized which reflected on our economy.  He said, like DIU, other universities should come forward and stress more on agro -industrial research innovation.
At the presidential address Vice Chancellor of DIU Prof Dr Yousuf M Islam said, the education system in tertiary level in our country is mainly theoretical based. Practical class opportunity is not sufficient. If the industrial organizations come forward to mitigate this problem, the students would get easy opportunity to gain practical knowledge beside theoretical knowledge.
