A Great Man


All the people in the world have different dreams. Someone wants to be a doctor, someone wants to be an engineer, someone wants to be a lawyer and someone wants to be an actor. Everyone has a goal. But there are many people in the world who do not really want to do anything for themselves, but they want to do something for the country and the nation. There is no shortage of such great people in the world.

The names of billions of other great people, including Mother Teresa, are written in gold in the pages of history because they lived for others. They did nothing for themselves. These great peoples dedicated their entire lives to the service of the people and the welfare of the people.

If we find some such people in our own country, then of course many names will come to mind. Because our country also had some people who represented their country in front of the whole world for their skills, qualifications and good deeds. So, if we come to the field of politics, then the name of a great man will surely come to our mind and he is Mr. Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu, a great leader born in 1945 in Anwara Haildhar Thana of Chittagong.


How He Gained His Experience Of Business


Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu returned to his homeland in December, 1964 with an associate’s degree after completing his studies abroad. After completing his studies and returning home, he joined the business with his elder brother in 1965. His skills and experience in business are at home while doing business with his elder brother.

He entered politics in 1967, two years after joining the business. While doing politics he suddenly concentrated on business again though he was active in business and politics alongside his elder brother.


His Organisations Before He Built UCB Bank


Not only a mature politician, he became a business guy. He changed into a totally energetic person in business as well as politics. Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu modified into a a hit businessman and industrialist. Further to politics, he set up a manufacturing facility known as Royal enterprise on Batali street earlier than independence.

Similarly to his own manufacturing facility, he additionally took care of his elder brother’s factories. It changed into thru this big brother’s business that he came to the business line. He later built diverse organizations together with his difficult work and qualifications. Some of the organizations he has installed are – Asif metallic Mill, Javed metallic Mill, Asif synthetic and so forth. Furthermore, he bought an overseas-owned Aramit Mill and built it on his very own.


UCB Is His Biggest Contribution 


His biggest contribution is today’s “United Commercial Bank’, also known as short form UCB. He has played a pioneering role in establishing the private banking sector in Bangladesh. He is the founder of United Commercial Bank Limited (UCBL), the second largest private bank in the country. He was re-elected as the Chairman of the Bank in 2011 and held the post till her death. Now Mrs.Rukhmila Zaman holds the post.


Inspiring Reason Behind To Open UCB Bank


As everyone knows, Mr. Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu’s aim from the beginning was to benefit the people. In our country now, as millions of unemployed youth are sitting at home due to lack of jobs, at that time there was the same problem in our country. Our great leader Mr. Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu was worried about this. So, Mr.Chowdhury Babu thought that if I set up different institutions or factories, then the unemployed youth of the country will get the opportunity to work, and their employment will be arranged. Moreover, these institutions will play an important role in the economy of the country.

With this in mind, Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu slowly started building various institutions and finally established UCB, the most famous bank in Bangladesh. Moreover, not much private bank was seen at that time, all the banks in the country were government. The private bank was probably one. In this Mr. Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu thought that there should be more private banks in Bangladesh. He built today’s UCB bank without much thought.
