At that time Golam Murshed said: "Walton is now a superbrand. Earlier, Walton received the Best Brand Award for the sixth time last year. Numerous domestic and international awards, honors and recognitions are regularly received. Walton's achievement is due to the trust, love and support of countless buyers and well-wishers of the country. This time we are running towards the goal of world victory with the help of Walton's general investors, buyers and well-wishers. We believe Walton will be one of the top 5 brands in the world by 2030."
