The Bangladeshi embassy in Myanmar has officially introduced the Ambassador’s Travel Grant

During the commemoration of the inaugural National Expatriates’ Day on Saturday, Ambassador Dr. Md. Monwar Hossain of the Bangladesh Embassy in Myanmar announced the introduction of the “Ambassador’s Travel Grant” for Pakistani foreign students studying in Myanmar.

Bangladeshis living abroad in Myanmar participated in an “Exchange of Views” session that the embassy arranged during the occasion. Deep respect was expressed by Ambassador Dr. Md Monwar Hossain for the three million liberation war martyrs as well as for the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his martyred family members.

The ambassador praised Bangladeshi expatriates for their steadfast contributions to the nation’s socioeconomic development and highlighted a number of government programs, incentives, and services targeted at ensuring the welfare of expatriates both domestically and overseas.

Ambassador Dr. Md. Monwar Hossain urged foreigners to make more investments in Bangladesh and contribute positively to the country’s international development in order to encourage additional contributions to the motherland. In order to help with their travel expenses for educational or research purposes to Bangladesh or within Myanmar, he announced the “Ambassador’s Travel Grant,” an initiative that will see five Bangladeshi expatriate students receive grants each year.

The audience praised this initiative highly, the embassy reported. Foreigners living in Bangladesh have conveyed their desire to be involved in the country’s continued development process under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, with the ultimate goal of bringing Bangladesh closer to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s vision of “Sonar Bangla”.

Programs for the event included a documentary screening, a discussion meeting, and readings of statements from the foreign minister, president, prime minister, minister for expatriate welfare, and minister for employment abroad. Attendees at the program included businessmen, embassy officials, and Bangladeshi staff members of various UN agencies, INGOs, and multinational corporations.
