Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said officers of the Bangladesh Army should have four qualities to take the leadership.

She said, army officers, at first, should have faith in the spirit of the War of Liberation, secondly they must be well-educated, mentality of serving the society and good moral character to be a commander, staff and trainer.

Success at field level alongside academic fitness and training should be most important criteria for promotion of officers in Bangladesh Army, Sheikh Hasina said while inaugurating the five-day 'Army Headquarters Selection Board 2017' held at the Army Headquarters Conference Hall of Dhaka Cantonment on Sunday.

“Staying above everything and through your analyses with your neutral judgment, you’ll have to find out qualified leadership having patriotism and the belief in the great Liberation War,” the PM said.

"I hope that participation of Bangladesh Army will grow further in the national development activities....., they can play a very supplementary role in strengthening and consolidating democratic process. So its future leadership should be entrusted on the competent and patriotic officers," she added.

She expressed satisfaction over introducing 'TRACE' (Tabulated Record and Comparative Evaluation) system for officers' promotion in the army. 

The prime minister said process is going on to construct five dental colleges and five nursing institutes for Bangladesh Army. The work for construction of the country's lone burn unit and plastic surgery hospital has been given to Bangladesh Army. It will be one of the best hospital in South Asia, she said.

Sheikh Hasina said the salary structure of the members of the armed forces has been reaffixed keeping consistency with that of the civil administration. The works of the 'Jalsiri' housing project for them is going on in quick pace, she said adding that the project would help strengthening mental strength of the officers.

Expressing her pleasure for induction of female officers on the armed forces the prime minister said her government believes in women empowerment at all national level. Female army officers in the armed forces would help change the position of womenfolk in the society, she hoped.
