Miller said the Indo-Pacific region is facing new technological, environmental, and security challenges.

US Ambassador to Bangladesh, Earl R Miller, said his country is working with Bangladesh to address the issue of human trafficking and to increase access to services for trafficking survivors.

He said this while addressing the press at the Sylhet Divisional Commissioner Conference Hall yesterday after concluding his three day visit to Sylhet which started on Monday. 

Referring to the meeting with Sylhet Divisional Commissioner Mustafizur Rahman and Sylhet District’s Deputy Commissioner Kazi Emdadul Islam, Ambassador Earl R Miller said: "We have talked about the efforts made by the district commissioner’s office against illegal travel agencies this past summer. 

"The divisional commissioner and I discussed measures that must be taken to stop traffickers from exploiting vulnerable people."

"American companies like Chevron not only contribute to Bangladesh’s energy sector, but also plays an important role in the country's growing economy as a major employer.

"We want other US companies such as Chevron to continue their investment in Bangladesh and introduce new innovative technologies into the economy, bringing shared prosperity to more and more people, thus benefiting both the countries," he added.

Miller said the Indo-Pacific region is facing new technological, environmental, and security challenges.

"US and Bangladesh need to work together to sustain an open investment environment and a level playing field for companies, and to reinforce the principles and values that made possible Bangladesh’s remarkable growth.  

"This is our vision and commitment to Bangladesh and the Bangladeshi people in our Indo-Pacific strategy," the US ambassador added.
