It gives me immense pleasure to learn that the Permanent Mission of Bangladesh in the United Nations in New York is publishing a booklet showcasing achievements of Bangladesh in the multilateral forum. The United Nations has been providing support and encouragement in our nation building since Bangladesh emerged as a sovereign entity under the visionary leadership of the Father of the Nation Bangababdhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. The United Nations has never failed to acknowledge our progress in the socio-economic field including achievement of MDG goals. Bangladesh is often referred to as a success story and a shining example and an inspiration for development for many countries. It could not have been possible without untiring efforts and commitment of the Permanent Mission in New York. The Mission has earned a reputation for effective and efficient delivery of its responsibilities.
I have no hesitation in saying that the achievement of Bangladesh in the last four years have been remarkable. Our election to various UN bodies, our presence in the UN peace keeping operation and our participation in and organization of UN events remain robust. I thank the Permanent Representative and his team for their resolve and would encourage them to continue their efforts in promoting and protecting national interest with more dedication and determination.
I wish the booklet publishing a grand success.
Khoda Hafez, May Bangladesh Live Forever.
