Foreign Minister Dr. AK Abdul Momen on Saturday said foreign investment flow increase significantly in the united states contributing to job creations through government efforts to brand Bangladesh positively across the world.
"You want to change the incorrect perception of Bangladesh completely. You want to help the world understand that Bangladesh is a land of opportunities with its vibrant economy," he told reporters after inaugurating the Bangabandhu Gallery and Library at state guesthouse Meghna.

Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen was also present.

Dr. Momen said Bangladesh is sometimes referred to as a poverty-stricken country and hard hit by natural disasters like cyclones, and Bangladesh wants a complete change of such narratives in the world.

He said the government has adopted various programs through its 78 missions abroad to brand Bangladesh positively.

"We've opened Bangabandhu Corners at 68 missions of 78 missions abroad. Bangladesh and Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman are inseparable," Dr. Momen said.

The foreign minister said the young persons of the country are certain to get many opportunities once an investment in Bangladesh grows.

"Nobody can stop Bangladesh. We are walking towards building ‘Sonar Bangla’ by 2041," he said.

On December 17, the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Street at Port Louis, Mauritius was inaugurated.

The naming of the road is a testimony of friendship between your two peoples of Mauritius and Bangladesh, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

That is also a testimony to the acceptance of a syncretic vision that Bangabandhu had for not merely his own country, but also for all the countries and all the many nations of the world, added the ministry.

Bangladesh is celebrating the birth centenary of Father of the country Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman that will continue till December 2021, and can celebrate 50 years of Bangladesh’s War of Liberation in 2021.
