Twinning of cities between Bangladesh, Netherlands urged

Describing Bangladesh and the Netherlands as Delta cousins, Bangladesh Ambassador to the Netherlands Sheikh Mohammed Belal has called for greater bridging arrangements like twinning of cities between the two countries.

The Bangladesh Ambassador made the proposal to the Mayor of Hengleo City of the Netherlands during a public reception recently arranged to honour Bangladesh Ambassador on his election as the Chairperson of the Executive Council of OPCW.

Describing the ongoing development spree in Bangladesh and the projected economic growth rate of around 7.25 per cent this year, Ambassador Belal urged the businesses to visit Bangladesh to become a partner in development.

He appreciated the role of NRBs for their contributions towards this development spree and said he came to Hengleo to honour those NRBs, not to be honoured merely as the Chairperson of the Executive Council of OPCW.

Other than NRBs from the Netherlands and adjacent areas of Germany, a good number of Dutch businesspeople and city officials attend the ceremony.

The reception was organised by Business Association of Bangladesh in the Netherlands and Germany (BAONG) in association of the Commercial Club of Twente (CCT) in Hengelo.

Mayor of Hengelo Sander Schelberg congratulated Bangladesh and Ambassador Belal for their role in international peace and appreciated Bangladesh business community in the Netherlands for bringing the two countries closer, Bangladesh Embassy in The Hague said in a press release on Friday.

Describing Hengleo as an industrial belt, he urged all to work for continued betterment of services of the people.

The Mayor also handed over a crest from BAONG to Ambassador Belal.

In response, Ambassador Belal described how Bangladesh has been working for world peace.

Informing that Bangladesh is an original signatory of the Chemical Weapons Convention, Ambassador Belal said he drew inspiration from three million lives that we sacrificed during our war of independence and visionary leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for world peace.unb.
