Chinese President Xi Jinping sends a video message to an event held by Bangladesh in commemoration of the centenary of its founding father Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s birth, also in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the country’s independence on March 17, 2021. On behalf of the Chinese government and Chinese people, Xi extended sincere greetings and best wishes to Bangladesh President Abdul Hamid, Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, and the Bangladeshi government and people.
Since its independence, Bangladesh has made remarkable achievements in national construction, Xi said, adding China is glad about that as a friendly neighbour. Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the two countries have been making joint efforts to overcome the difficulties and rendering mutual help, Xi said. Major projects in Bangladesh Chinese enterprises participated in have made groundbreaking progress. Stressing that he attaches great importance to the development of China-Bangladesh ties, Xi expressed the hope to work with Bangladesh to better align the two countries’ development strategies and jointly promote the construction of the Belt and Road, so as to take the China-Bangladesh strategic partnership of cooperation to new heights.
In the last few decades, BIC has established extensive and in-depth cooperation with the government of Bangladesh. We have been committed to providing advanced water conservancy technologies suitable for the Bangladesh market, such as the rubber dam, Hydraulic Elevator Dam and Simplified Elevated Dam. So far, we have built about 80 rubber dams and completed two Hydraulic Elevator Dams in Bangladesh, which have greatly improved the efficiency of local agricultural irrigation, increased grain production and brought great economic benefits to the local people.
In the coming years, sincerely hope that we can continue to work together to have more pragmatic cooperation in the field of water resources and water conservancy.
May the friendship between China and Bangladesh last from generation to generation and last forever.
