“I sincerely believe that our friendship and collaboration have vast potentials to be realized through greater trade, investment, human resource development and technical cooperation for the benefit of our two peoples,” said the prime minister.

She is encouraged by the increased Korean investment in the infrastructure and socio-economic development programs of Bangladesh.

The prime minister took the opportunity to express deep appreciation for the continued participation of the government of the Republic of Korea in the development initiatives of Bangladesh as Bangladesh strives to build the “Sonar Bangla” – the Prosperous Bangladesh, as envisioned by the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

She expressed the willingness of her government to continue to work closely with Korea on regional and global issues.

In this regard, she underscored the importance of early, safe and sustained repatriation of the Rohingyas to Myanmar which is vital for the peace, stability and security of the region.

The prime minister also mentioned that this protracted crisis has potential to destabilize the entire region.

Bangladesh appreciates Korea’s continued engagements in various fora, including the UN, in resolving the Rohingya crisis, Hasina said. 

She extended her firm belief that the existing friendly relation between our two peoples will further consolidate our cooperation during your term in the office.

The prime minister concluded by conveying her best wishes for Kim’s good health and happiness, and for continued peace, progress and prosperity of the friendly people of the Republic of Korea.
