Dr A.K. Abdul Momen, MP, Foreign Minister

On the occasion of March 26 - the 50th Independence and National day of Bangladesh, I extend my heartfelt greetings and warm felicitations to all Bangladeshis living both home and abroad. The golden jubilee of our independence and the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, are being celebrated this year. These are rare occasions in our history.


Following the guided path of Bangabandhu, his able daughter Hon'ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is determined to build a knowledge-based and prosperous country. As a result of various pragmatic initiatives taken by the present government, Bangladesh has been transformed into an economic miracle with a sustained high growth during the last 12 years. Bangladesh with its pro- investment policies, huge domestic market, strategically important geopolitical location, political stability and its hard-working skilled people has become a lucrative destination for foreign investment. According to the Centre for Economics & Banking Research, a London-based think- tank, Bangladesh is expected to be the 25th largest economy in the world by 2035. Bangladesh under the able leadership of Hon'ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has done a remarkable job in tackling the Covid-19 global pandemic while keeping our economy at almost full functionality. Even amid the Covid-19 Pandemic, Bangladesh achieves a GDP growth of 5.24 per cent which is the highest among all Asian countries.


I hope that the Bangladeshi expatriates will participate and support the ongoing advancement of the government. I thank all the members of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and our missions abroad who have been working with a deep commitment to uphold our national interest across nations.
