This is the era of globalization and communication networking through the super highway. In near future Bangladesh will be definitely the part of his global network. Therefore, efficient physical networking throughout the country will play a very significant role in the economic development of the country. With the development of the Narayanganj river port with bus and railway station it has become a very significant part of the trading and business of the country. Being a trading centre Narayanganj has its very important role to play as a business hub of the country.
