UNB

Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) wants to be champion in helping Bangladesh achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and promote it to be a developed country by 2021, reports UNB. “We'll continue to work in Bangladesh with our partners to help it further and help it achieve the SDGs and other development goals,” KOICA Country Director in Bangladesh Cary Hyungue Joe told UNB. He said Bangladesh and KOICA have an “excellent cooperation” and the cooperation is growing in many areas. Particularly, we place more emphasis on democracy and promoting human rights as well as gender equality in our Bangladesh development programmes.” Earlier, the KOICA Country Director interacted with a small group of journalists on various activities of the KOICA in Bangladesh. KOICA Deputy Country Director Go Ahreum, its development specialist Biswajit Kumar Sarkar and principal programme officer Md Khalid Hossain were present. Biswajit made a presentation highlighting the ongoing and completed projects of KOICA in Bangladesh.

He also highlighted the focus areas of KOICA in Bangladesh, including health, education, public administration, technology, emergency relief and others. The Korean government will support the Bangladesh government to realise the Vision 2021 and the 7th Five Year Plan, focusing on improving quality of human resources, increasing regional connectivity through expansion of transport infrastructures, reinforcing public health services and reinforcing ICT infrastructures for the acceleration of economic growth, according to Korea's Country Partnership Strategy for Bangladesh (2016-2020).
