At the end of the discussion, the projects adopted were urged to be implemented expeditiously. Besides, it was decided to discuss in detail about 'Bangladesh Travel Agency (Registration and Control) (Amendment) Act-2013' in the next meeting.

It was informed at the meeting that flights activities have been resumed from May 31 in view of the decision of all government, autonomous and non-government organisations to start activities to change the stagnant economic situation due to the Covid-19 situation.
