Bhutan Times - - Home - Biku Gu­rung

The Bangladeshi com­mu­nity in Thim­phu cel­e­brated their 44th In­de­pen­dence and Na­tional day in the cap­i­tal last Thurs­day at the Bangladesh em­bassy com- plex.

The cel­e­bra­tion be­gan with hoist­ing of Bangladesh’s Na­tional Flag by the Bangladesh’s Am­bas­sador to Bhutan, Jishnu Roy Choud­hury.

The Am­bas­sador, read out the Bangladesh’s Prime Min­is­ter, Sheikh Hasina’s ad­dress to the na­tion. The mes­sage high­lighted Bangladesh’s his­tory, econ­omy, achieve­ments and chal­lenges.

Bangladesh Prime Min­is­ter Sheikh Hasina con­vey that dur­ing the last six years, they im­ple­mented huge devel­op­ment works in all sec­tors, in­clud­ing agri­cul­ture, ed­u­ca­tion, health, com­mu­ni­ca­tion, en­ergy and power, ICT, ur­ban and ru­ral devel­op­ment.

She has also con­veyed that FDI and em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­nity have mul­ti­plied man­i­fold. Bangladesh has turned into a role model in bi­lat­eral or devel­op­ment. Var­i­ous na­tions and world bod­ies have lauded and rec­og­nized our achieve­ment, she has added.

She has shared this achieve­ment of theirs so as to Bhutan to also be­come one of the ex­am­ple world- wide. Bhutan is rec­og­nized be­cause of its Gross Na­tional Hap­pi­ness which has been ap­pre­ci­ated world- wide.

The other del­e­gate who is a state min­is­ter of Bangladesh also con­veyed mes­sage that at the in­ter­na­tional front, Bangladesh fol­lows the for­eign pol­icy prin­ci­ple. He said, “Friend­ship to all and mal­ice to­wards none” as out­lined the fa­ther of their na­tion. In line with that, Bangladesh has been play­ing a con­struc­tive role in pro­mot­ing in­ter­na­tional peace and sta­bil­ity. Min­istry re­mains deeply fo­cused on sub- re­gional, re­gional and in­ter­na­tional is­sues apart from its bi­lat­eral en­gage­ments.

The am­bas­sador was then pre­sented a Tashi Khad­dar by Zim­pon­wom, Ugyen Sonam on be­half of the Royal Gov­ern­ment of Bhutan af­ter the cer­e­mony.

The day com­mem­o­rates the coun­try’s dec­la­ra­tion of In­de­pen­dence from Pak­istan on March 26, 1971.
