President urges expatriates to invest

The younger sister of the Prime Minister, Sheikh Rehana, Baroness Pola Uddin, the son of the President, Nazmul Hasan, MP, and a large number of Bangladeshi expatriates were also present at this occasion. President Zillur Rahman praised the role of expatriates in sending remittances to Bangladesh, which is one of the major drivers of the country’s socio-eco- nomic development. He also revealed that the present government is seri- ously considering allowing expatriates to vote in elections in Bangladesh.

President Zillur Rahman has urged Bangladeshi expatriates residing in the United Kingdom to invest more in Bangladesh. “Everyone includ- ing expatriates should work hard in a united and sincere way, imbued with patriotism, to build a happy, prosper- ous and dignified Bangladesh,” he said while speaking at a reception held at the Kensington Hall in London. Foreign Minister Dr Dipu Moni also spoke at the reception, which was chaired by emi- nent journalist, columnist and writer, Abdul Gaffar Chowdhury.

Spice Business Magazine

on the lawns of the college’s Smallford campus in June, had over 20 restau- rants to choose from, with cuisine varying from Caribbean to Indian, but in the end, the family-run restaurant won them over. Kashim Abdul, who co-owns the res- taurant with his brother and was brought up in St Albans, says: “This is such an honour for us and fantastic news considering the number of res- taurants that took part in the festival. It also gives the staff a great boost for all their hard work and effort to be recognised.”


This was the first year of the festival which was adjudged a big success by Mark Dawe, principal and chief exec- utive of the college. He adds, “We achieved our aim of celebrating cul- tures from around the world through food, music and dance and creating a day that is fun and accessible for all of the family. We also hope that it will give a boost to our talented local restau- rants and it’s wonderful to have it all being held against a backdrop of Relay for Life, where competitors are raising money for Cancer Research UK.”

The President congratulated Rushanara Ali for becoming a member of the House of Commons - the first Bangladeshi expatriate to achieve this - and Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s grand- daughter Rezwana Siddique Tulip for becoming an elected councillor.
