‘Youth must take a lead in strengthening people-to-people connection between the two excellent neighbours’
Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Syed Muazzem Ali has urged Indian youth to join forces with their Bangladeshi counterpart to foster friendship and harmony between the nations.
He was speaking at an interactive event organized by the Confederation of Young Leaders (CYL) at Bangladesh mission in India on Thursday, reports BSS.
Hailing the youth as brand ambassadors of their countries, Syed Muazzem said: “Youth must take a lead in strengthening people-to-people connection between the two excellent neighbours.”
He underlined the need for promoting deeper exchanges, especially among the youth of the two countries, to enhance collective prosperity and well-being.
The envoy told the students that Bangladesh, with over 8% GDP, is emerging with confidence, meeting all the criteria to graduate from LDC to the status of a developing nation.
“Together we will build cherished Sonar Bangla [Golden Bengal] and that will be our best tribute to the martyrs and freedom fighters,” the veteran freedom fighter diplomat told the young audience.
Describing the youth as the future leaders, he advised them to be imbibed with knowledge, innovation, courage and virtues of leadership.
“Finally, be a good soul and shape up yourself as a good human being,” the envoy added.
His speech was later followed by a Q&A session.
About 20 youths took part in the meeting. CYL chairman Himadrish Suwan and its general secretary Vansh Saluja also spoke on the occasion.
