Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s message to HE Mr. Li Keqiang


Excellency,

On the auspicious occasion of the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relation between Bangladesh and China, I, on behalf of the government and the people of Bangladesh would like to extend our heartiest congratulations and warmest felicitations to you and through you to the government and the friendly people of China.

I take this opportunity to express our deep appreciation for the continued support of the Government of China to the socio-economic development of Bangladesh. Years of trusted friendship and cooperation between our two countries have yielded a strategic partnership to further strengthen our cooperation that has much potential to promote peace, security, and stability not only in the region but also across the globe.

I am encouraged by the increased volume of Chinese investment in the infrastructure development of Bangladesh in the recent years. The interest of the Chinese companies to invest in Bangladesh’s favorable investment climate is also encouraging.

Bangladesh and China have been working together in resolving the crisis of over 1.1 million forcibly displaced Myanmar nationals who have taken temporary shelter in Bangladesh. We seek your Excellency’s continued support to ensure the sustainable return of all those refugees from Bangladesh to their homes in the Rakhine state of Myanmar.

I avail of this opportunity to convey my best wishes for your good health, long life and happiness, and the continued peace, progress, and prosperity of the friendly people of China. 

Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
