British Council hosts reception in London

The British Council in Bangladesh recently hosted a reception at the British Academy in London.

The reception was attended by Scott McDonald, chief executive British Council, Masud Bin Momen, Bangladesh foreign secretary,  Robert Chatterton Dickson, British high commissioner to Bangladesh, Saida Muna Tasneem, high commissioner for Bangladesh to the UK, along with other UK and Bangladesh delegates and the Bangladesh diaspora community, according to a press release. 

Commenting on the strong binding ties between the UK and Bangladesh, Scott McDonald, chief executive, British Council said, "We are very proud to have been part of Bangladesh’s remarkable journey. It’s been a privilege to play our part in connecting the people of Bangladesh and the UK – building trust and making friends across time and space.

The last half century has seen great achievements for Bangladesh, and many developments in the relationship between Bangladesh and the United Kingdom. The British Council takes great pride in being part of that history, and we look forward, with real excitement, to the next chapter of the story".

Highlights from the photography exhibition ‘London 1971: The Unsung Heroes of the Bangladesh’s Liberation war’ were also displayed to coincide with the Strategic Dialogue. This exhibit showcased 40 rare photographs exploring the role that the people in London played in Bangladesh’s liberation movement in 1971. The Liberation War of Bangladesh instigated a massive uproar in the international community, especially among the Bangladeshi diaspora in the UK, and the movement in London was among the most prominent of its kind.
