Sheikh Hasina

Prime Minister, Government of People’s Republic of Bangladesh

I am very pleased to hear that the Desh Foundation UK have organised a second British Bangladeshi Business awards (BBBAwards) on 14th may 2017.

I am glad to know that the first BBBAwards was a tremendous success and I congratulated Desh Foundation UK in putting together such a splendid event for the British Bangladeshi voice to be heard, which it so much deserved. I also want to congratulate all the winners of the first event and wish all the best to the nominee for this year.

As Bangladeshi, you have accomplished so many great things over a number of years, from innovative business ideas to providing excellent service, you have created a well –respected reputation within the British Business industry. Bangladesh would not be where it is today without the outstanding effort, skill and courage made by the British Bangladeshis.

I will take this opportunity to invite the British Bangladesh diaspora to replicate their remarkable entrepreneurial success in Bangladesh by contributing into fast growing economy. The government will facilitate bilateral investments which will benefit both UK and Bangladesh economy.

I wish “The British Bangladeshi Business Awards 2017” a grand success. Joy Bangla. Joy Banglabandhu.
