Norwegian FM: Transparency required for Bangladesh to reach middle-income status
“The aim to become a middle-income country is within reach, but Bangladesh has to ensure transparency in all sectors and scrap corruption to reach this goal,” the Norwegian foreign minister said. He made the comment during a roundtable meeting with more than 50 young leaders through the Young Global Leaders network, moderated by Lutfey Siddiqi at Sonargaon Hotel in Dhaka on Monday. In addition to political talks held at the hotel, he met with the Norwegian-Bangladeshi business community and witnessed the signing of a collaboration agreement between solar power producer Scatec Solar and AK Khan and Company Ltd. He also held a meeting with the dedicated staff of the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Dhaka. Borge Brende, the first ever foreign minister from any Nordic country to visit Bangladesh, will place a floral wreath at the Central Shaheed Minar in the first hour of 21 February to pay homage to the martyrs of the Bangladeshi Language Movement. On Monday morning, he was received by Secretary (Bilateral & Consular, Foreign Ministry) Kamrul Ahsan and Bangladesh Ambassador to Norway Md Golam Sarwar at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, a foreign ministry press release said. He will leave Bangladesh on Thursday.
