Women empowerment is one of the major reasons of the development in western countries. But poor countries are getting behind of development because of the lackings in women empowerment. But some developing countries are now coming up strongly with women empowerment. Bangladesh is one of those countries.
Bangladesh’s Permanent Representative to the UN Dr AK Abdul Momen said commitment to empowerment of women and its execution at various levels had contributed to creating a positive image of Bangladesh abroad.
“It has been reflected in the victory of Bangladesh with highest vote in the election of different committees of the UN,” Dr Momen said while talking to a delegation of Framingham State College of Boston at the Bangladesh Mission in New York, according to a message received here today.
The 16-member delegation comprised of chairs of the departments of Information and Technology, Economics and Business Administration and Psychology and students. They were keen to know the activities of Bangladesh in the UN.
Dr Momem underlined the Bangladesh success in the UN peacekeeping missions as the highest troops contributing country and its active role on climate change issues.
Economic minister Nazibur Rahman was present on the occasion.
