Prince Charles congratulated Bangladesh through a video message on Thursday

Prince Charles of the United Kingdom (UK) congratulated the people of Bangladesh on the occasion of the country’s 50 years of independence through a video message on Thursday.

In the opening remarks of his message, Prince Charles said: "Assalamualaikum, ladies and gentlemen, I am so very pleased to be able to send my warmest congratulations and best wishes to everyone celebrating the golden jubilee of Bangladesh - here in the United Kingdom, in Bangladesh, across the Commonwealth and around the world.”

"Over the last few years I have been fortunate enough to witness Bangladesh's incredible development into the confident and proud partner of today. These achievements have been remarkable. From bringing more than 50 million people from out of extreme poverty since 1990 to increasing life expectancy and reducing infant mortality, to turning the economy into one of the fastest growing in the world," he added.

The Prince of Wales also commended Bangladeshi frontline workers during the pandemic, appreciating their work in Bangladesh as well as the UK.

“It is a matter of great personal sadness that this global pandemic has so far prevented me from making a visit to Bangladesh to mark this special year,” he said.

“I particularly wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude to frontline workers helping to keep Bangladesh safe during these difficult times. And to the many British Bangladeshis who contribute so much to the national health service here in the United Kingdom,” he added.

He closed his video message with greetings in Bangla, saying: “Shadhinotar Ponchash Bochore Bangladesh ke amar obhinondon.”
