With a vision ‘Go Global 2030′, Walton wants to become one of the best global electronics brands by the next nine years, said Walton Hi-Tech Industries’ Managing Director Golam Murshed at a roadshow.
Organised by the Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission, the event, styled “Investor summit: Bangladesh capital markets” was held at the ballroom of the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva on September 22 to facilitate and encourage the interest of the investors to invest in the stock market in Bangladesh.

“Once people had to go to neighbors’ homes to store foods in refrigerators, facing many derogatory comments from them,” Murshed said.
But the scenario has changed within 12 years as the purchasing capacities of people from all walks of life have increased in Bangladesh.
Besides, the price of electronics and technology products, including refrigerators are under control of the people in comparison to their earnings.
This success comes only due to the timely actions initiated by the incumbent government, he added.
The managing director went on to say that the father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman dreamt of the economic emancipation which is being implemented by his daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
“We are working relentlessly to realise his dream of Sonar Bangla. Walton will surely be enlisted among the global brands by the next nine years, so we should act together in this connection,” he said.
