The Bangladesh Pavilion located at the sustainability district will showcase the country’s mega infrastructural projects, women empowerment, climate resilience, inclusive industrial policies, agrarian development and its growing pharmaceutical industry that have catapulted the South Asian nation on the path of rapid economic progress.
Bangladesh is celebrating its 50th year of independence this year that coincides with the UAE’s 50th year. In the same year, the country also marks the 100th birth anniversary of its founding father Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
The Bangladeshi ambassador to the UAE, Mohammad Abu Zafar said “Bangladesh is in the process of graduating from a Least Developed Country (LDC) to a developing country. We have worked some miracles by pursing inclusive and sustainable economic policy. Other countries can take a leaf out our example.”
“This is an Expo where people from all over the world will be visiting. We are going to showcase our story and how far we have come in the last 50 years.”
Special events will also be held to mark the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation at the Bangladesh pavilion so that the visitors can know about Bangladesh and the history of the Liberation War of Bangladesh in 1971.
The Export Promotion Bureau will also display Bangladesh’s export products to potential importers from different countries. Various ministries/departments of the Bangladesh government will also showcase their achievements in Expo 2020 Dubai. In addition, Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy will organise the cultural programmes during the mega event.
