While presenting keynote paper Professor Dr. Md. Golam Rahman said that media can play an associate role for establishing good governance not more than else. Media cannot change day to night or night to day. He gave example and said according to the example that it’s not possible for mass people to reach government. So media uphold their voice to authority of government. Then government implements the demand of mass people. Thus media can establish good governance.
Professor Rahman also said, inasmuch as media play a bridging role between mass people and government, so media have to be more conscious and responsible. The mass media will have to grow as per based on social responsibility, accountability and rationality, he added.

Mr. Shykh Seraj, Head of News of Channel i, eminent TV journalist and media personality said, media can create pressure upon government for good governance when media is decent to his work. So that culture of good governance has to start from home. If good governance is established at home first, than it would be established in society and in the state gradually. Most of the media are engaged with indisposed competition among each other. They don’t follow ethics of journalism. He gave example that once there were series bomb attacks in 64 districts. That time media started competition among themselves to publish those gruesome photos. This bad practice is still going on, added Mr.Shykh Seraj.
He also said, we have to skip out from this bad practice. From 2006 I make program about agricultural budget. Farmers are standing in front of policy makers of government by this program.
Addressing as guest of honor Dr. Md. Sabur Khan said, once upon a time most of the people wouldn’t confess that agriculture is a profession. But now most of the people acknowledge that and even our young students are now proudly acknowledged that his father is a farmer. Change of this social insight was possible due to the contribution of mass media and especially for Mr. Shykh Seraj. Farmers are the great entrepreneur thoug most of them have no land but they cultivates others land produce crops. Government has no remarkable initiative for these rural entrepreneurs. He urged the government to allow to expand financial support for them and mass media can play a vital role in this regard.
