The government of Bangladesh is committed to ensuring the safety of all tourists currently in the country—and those who are planning to visit—remarked State Minister for Civil Aviation and Tourism Md Mahbub Ali.

As per the commitment, he says the government has taken all necessary steps and initiatives so that tourists can visit and travel around the country, without hesitation, feeling safe. 

Md Mahbub Ali remarked this while addressing the press at the closing ceremony of the event titled "Bideshi Sangbadik O Tour Operator Porichitimulok Vromon" organized by the Bangladesh Tourism Board at the InterContinental hotel, in Dhaka, on Monday, at noon. 

This event was organized in order to highlight Bangladesh's tourism sector for the outside world.

A total of 26 journalists and tour operators—from Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, UK, China Japan, South Korea, Thailand, and Lebanon—attended this event as they travelled and visited various tourist and historic attractions in Bangladesh.

The state minister said: "The present government of Bangladesh is under the visionary leadership of the Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. She has emphasized the need for integrated and planned strategies to develop the country's tourism sector and ensure our position in the competitive global market. 

"We are encouraging the private sector to come forward with innovative strategies and plans to create employment through investment in the tourism sector."

"Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and Bhutan have recently executed the Motor Vehicle Agreement to increase tourism among the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc) countries. 

"Additionally, to attract more people to visit Bangladesh, the construction of  intensive tourist spots on 1,200 acres of land in Cox's Bazar is underway. Both foreign and domestic investors are more than welcome to invest here," he added.

Chief Executive Officer of Bangladesh Tourism Board Dr Bhuban Chandra presided over the event.

Among others, Chairman of Bangladesh Tourism Corporation Akhtaruzzaman Khan Kabir, Director of Bangladesh Tourism Board Abu Taher Mohammad Jaber, Superintendent of Tourist Police Bangladesh Sardar Nurul Amin, and the participants were also present at the event.
