UNB, Dhaka :
Bangladesh expects Netherlands to come forward to support it to implement the Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100, says Bangladesh Ambassador in The Hague.
Bangladesh also sought Dutch support for implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to be a partner of development through implementation of Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100, which is premised on greater attention to the grassroots through its in-built bottom-up approach.
Bangladesh Ambassador to the Netherlands Sheikh Mohammed Belal mentioned Netherlands' vast reservoir of knowledge and technology, huge pool of water and delta related business entities and knowledge institutions as well as enormous goodwill for Bangladesh.
Ambassador Belal appreciated Dutch innovation and creativity in securing their country from the scourge of floods despite large part of its being below the mean sea level, and underscored that the Dutch ingenuity in delta management would be critical in implementing Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100 as well like its technical assistance to Bangladesh in formulating the plan.
