PM returns home from UAE

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina returned home yesterday night from Dubai wrapping up her four-day official visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after attending Dubai Air Show-2019 and other programmes. The premier visited the UAE at the invitation of its Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. An Emirates flight carrying the prime minister and her entourage members landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at 10.55 pm.

Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque, PM’s Security Adviser Major General (retd) Tariq Ahmed Siddiq and Principal Secretary Md Nojibur Rahman, Chief Coordinator on the SDG Affairs at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) Md Abul Kalam Azad, PMO Secretary Sajjadul Hassan and high civil and military officials were present at the airport to receive the prime minister. Earlier, the flight took off from Dubai International Airport for Dhaka at 4:45 pm (local time). Bangladesh Ambassador to the UAE Mohammad Imran saw the premier off at the airport.

On November 17, Sheikh Hasina joined the grand opening ceremony of the five-day 16th biennial “Dubai Air Show,” one of the largest and most successful airshows in the world and the biggest aerospace event in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. She later witnessed the eye-catching aerobatic air display at Dubai World Central, Dubai’s airport of the future (also known as Dubai Al Maktoum International Airport).
