Mahfuja Mukul: Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Li Jiming said Bangladesh has become a role model in development under the great leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who like her father has been surprising the world through one after another national achievements.
“While Bangladesh is heading towards the realisation of Sonar Bangla, China, as a strategic partner as well as a trusted friend, has always stood by Bangladesh and will certainly continue to do so in its every future endeavour,” he said in a video message on behalf of the government and people of China.
The ambassador extended the warmest greetings to all in Bangladesh on the occasion of the seminar on the Banking Policy of Bangabandhu and Daily Industry Best Rated Bank Award.
Moreover, he said, Sheikh Hasina’s leadership in combating and tackling the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic has been phenomenal, and the timely steps for quick economic recovery to march ahead towards the country’s development goals have already started paying off.
“I could feel prouder and more honoured to have the opportunity to join you in the program,” said the ambassador.
He said Bangladesh was a wonder in 1971, by achieving independence through the Liberation War, which was only made possible by the charismatic leadership of the greatest Bangalee of all time and Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
“Therefore, I join you today to pay my tribute to the sacred soul of Bangabandhu, the national leaders, freedom fighters, and all martyrs of 1971,” said the ambassador.
