Mourning the demise of Adamjee Jute Mills

Mourning the demise of Adamjee Jute Mills

JUNE 30 was a sad day for workers, employees, officials and residents of Adamjee Nagar as the curtains were drawn on Asia`s biggest jute mills on the day 15 years ago. The move left 24,916 people without a job. Although an export processing zone was set up four years later on a portion of land that housed Adamjee Jute Mills generating 53,118 jobs, the locals still mourn the closure.
