Swiss Ambassador to Bangladesh Nathalie Chuard invites all to visit the ‘Swiss Corner’ at the National Museum in Dhaka

Swiss Ambassador to Bangladesh Nathalie Chuard on Saturday said the “Swiss Corner” at the National Museum is a milestone of Switzerland’s growing ties with Bangladesh.

She invited everyone to visit it with their families and friends to learn more about her country as the redesigned “Switzerland Corner” at the World Civilization Gallery of the National Museum of Bangladesh was launched through a ceremony.

State Minister for Cultural Affairs KM Khalid attended the ceremony as chief guest and officially inaugurated the exhibition corner together with the Ambassador of Switzerland to Bangladesh Nathalie Chuard.

Government officials, international partners, eminent cultural actors and members of the civil society and media of Bangladesh also attended the event, maintaining health protocols. 

The state minister highlighted the importance of further enhancing bilateral relations and expanding cooperation also in the areas of art and culture. 

The "Switzerland Corner" features over 100 Swiss artefacts and multimedia displays.

This permanent exhibition, accessible to all museum visitors, provides a great opportunity to learn not only about the country’s longstanding and broad-ranging partnership with Bangladesh, but also about Switzerland’s values and unique characteristics: a dynamic and prosperous country, thriving on innovation and its rich cultural heritage, playing an active role in global affairs, committed to sustainable development.

The launch coms at a time when Switzerland and Bangladesh are gearing up steps towards celebrating the 50th anniversary of their bilateral relations next year.

Over the past five decades, the Swiss Embassy said, the relationship between the two countries has expanded manifold in the fields of humanitarian and development cooperation, economic and political relations as well as cultural exchanges.
