US Deputy Assistant Secretary at the Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs, Afreen Akhter, has said the United States has been an important development partner in Bangladesh’s journey.

Appreciating Bangladesh’s remarkable progress since its independence, she said, the progress that Bangladesh has made as a country has been truly remarkable.

Speaking at a reception on Saturday, the US deputy assistant secretary said it is incredible that over the past 52 years, Bangladesh has lifted millions out of poverty. She also mentioned the deep economic relations between Bangladesh and the US.

Referring to her visit to Bangladesh on various occasions, Akhter said during each visit, she is really reminded of the strength, resilience, and fortitude of the Bangladeshi people.

Those are the virtues that led to Bangladesh’s liberation, and those are the virtues that will carry Bangladesh forward in its journey, she said.

The Bangladesh Embassy in Washington DC on Saturday celebrated the 53rd Victory Day with a vow to build a hunger-and-poverty-free happy and prosperous Bangladesh as dreamt by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and three million martyrs.
