Berlin, March 24: German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has said that a vibrant democracy is prevailing in Bangladesh with attractive development and high economic growth.
In a text message on Tuesday, he said the country has achieved remarkable development and a vibrant democracy with high economic growth.
The message was read by Bangladesh Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on the 7th day of a 10-day program at the National Parade Ground to mark the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the country's golden jubilee of independence.
At the same time in the message, the German President said that Bangladesh has clearly succeeded in reducing poverty by adopting innovative development policies and strategies.
Steinmeier said Bangladesh's peaceful foreign policy and liberal humanitarian involvement, especially the sheltering of thousands of Rohingya people fleeing their homeland, are highly valued by the world.
"The global challenges of our time, especially the ongoing epidemic situation and climate change, can only be addressed if we work together," he said. Our friendly relations of many years stand on a solid foundation for this kind of cooperation.
He congratulated the people of Bangladesh on the occasion of the golden jubilee of independence and wished them success in all their endeavors.
