The Asian Asian Development Bank (ADB) on Tuesday praised Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s dynamic leadership in managing the Covid-19 pandemic and rolling out a nationwide vaccination program successfully.

Paying a courtesy call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her official residence in the capital, ADB Country Director for Bangladesh Manmohan Parkash also said that they will provide Bangladesh with $940 million as assistance to purchase Covid-19 vaccines said PM’s Assistant Press Secretary MM Emrul Kayas. 

“To help expedite the economic recovery from the pandemic, ADB is discussing with the government a proposal for $940 million in assistance from ADB’s APVAX Facility for Bangladesh’s vaccine program,” Emrul quoted the ADB country director as saying.
