It’s amazing how much Bangladesh has achieved since its birth, says the UK prime minister in a message

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has hailed Bangladesh as “one of the fastest growing economies in the world” and emphasized that the UK and Bangladesh share the ambition to create an even more prosperous and environmentally sustainable future.

He congratulated the people of Bangladesh on their Golden Jubilee and said he looks forward to the two countries working together to create an environmentally sustainable future.

“It’s amazing to reflect on how much your nation has achieved since the circumstance of its birth," said the UK Prime Minister marking the country’s independence.

In a video message, Johnson remembered the historic visit of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to Downing Street in London in 1972, describing the visit as “instrumental in forging the friendship” between the UK and Bangladesh.

Prime Minister Johnson recalled fondly his visit to Bangladesh in 2018 when he was welcomed “with a great deal of warmth and generosity”.

He emphasized the bond between the UK and Bangladesh, “incarnated by the 600,000 strong British-Bangladeshi community who contribute so much to the United Kingdom every day”.

The British Prime Minister said, “I think particularly of the fantastic doctor and nurses in our NHS, many of whom are helping to treat and vaccinate people in our battle against Covid-19”.

“I look forward to working with Prime Minister [Sheikh] Hasina and to seeing her again at COP26 in Glasgow. But for now, as we look ahead to the next 50 years of British and Bangladeshi friendship, I wish everyone the very best for your Golden Jubilee,” he added.
