Dr Hasan, also the publicity and publication secretary of ruling Awami League, said Bangladesh has undergone an remarkable change in different fields under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the last 10 years.
"Now Bangladesh is no more a least developed country. Now the country is a lower middle income country," he added.
"Bangladesh has turned into a food surplus country from a food deficit one. Now Bangladesh is a case study before the globe," the minister said.
He urged all to work together to implement the 'Vision 2021' and 'Vision 2041', announced by Bangabandhu's daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
The minister also urged everyone to come forward to build a developed nation to materialize the dream of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman by establishing a "Sonar Bangla".
Dr Hasan expressed the hope that the Dhaka Tribune would continue to be at the centre stage of journalism in future.
The Dhaka Tribune Publisher, Kazi Anis Ahmed and board member Kazi Inam Ahmed were also present on the occasion.
Kazi Anis credited the Dhaka Tribune's journalists and employees with the contributions to the daily's remarkable journey it has been making in the field of journalism.
