‘Geographic position makes Bangladesh an ideal place to link East with West’


Bangladesh could be the perfect place to establish a link between the East and the West if the country can take advantage of its geographic location, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina believes.
“Bangladesh’s geographic position is very significant,” she told officials at a programme through videoconferencing from the Ganabhaban on Thursday, reports bdnews24.com.

“Bangladesh could be an ideal place for the link between the East and the West if we could develop the country to that end,” she added.

Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had also wanted to establish Bangladesh as the “Switzerland of the East”, according to Hasina.
Switzerland’s geographic position is important in Europe because others need to cross it while travelling from one end to the other, said the prime minister.

“Bangladesh is also in between an international air route. We can explore the possibilities in this field. It will boost our tourism along with the aviation sector,” she said.

The prime minister inaugurated the Pani Bhaban, a mural of Bangabandhu, and a corner for the country’s founding father at Shahjalal International Airport, Parjatan Bhaban, and the construction of extended parts of Sylhet Osmani International Airport.

The statement is true only if MM agrees to link itself with BD. As far as I know, it had vetoed the route of Asian Highways connecting it with BD. So, this highway route goes from BD to Indian NE and from there to MM.

MM is a rogue state following the examples of North Korea with the advice of India.

East and West?

usually I love all positive things about Bangladesh, but this statement is at the level of Indian statements.

Bangladesh is almost completely surrounded by India, what connection? what link? what east and west? to west is India, to north is India, to east is India, baring small border with crazy Burma. lol

Are you here to quarrel with us? What India surrounding BD you are talking about? See the map and know why your Delhi govt begs us to give you land and water links through our country. India, the Pigmy, is surrounded by Pakistan in the west and BD in the east.

Neither you can go west nor east. Your Chicken Neck is at our mercy. It is not fit for a good connection anyway. That is why the GoI begs BD to provide connections.

Bangladesh is the land bridge between South and South-East Asia. We don't need Asian Highway because China has offered BRI to Bangladesh.

Spot on mate. It's a nonsensical statement that Hasina cut and pasted from some travel brochure about Istanbul.

Perhaps she meant Asian Highway. Any overland link between East and South East Asia with South Asia and beyond in the West usually traverse the flat territory of Bangladesh. North of Bangladesh is high Himalayan Mountain and vast, remote and sparsely populated Tibetan plateau which is effectively a frozen wasteland. South is Bay of Bengal. neither of which are suitable for creating overland transportation corridor. So Bangladesh may function as a kind of bridge between East and West if Asian Highway and rail network materialize in the future.

You are talking as if north east India is not having any land connection with mainland India..... sorry it's not like Azerbaijan nakcivan enclave..... it's very well connected with mainland India at siliguri corridor with 22km broad land mass....

We don't beg we pay you transit fees for using Bangladesh as a shortcut to reach NE...... from Kolkata if I have to travel to shillong instead of traveling all the way in north to siliguri and then connect to NE through chicken neck is a costly affair......you are getting paid for this not doing any charity....

Bangladesh geographic location had been in the cross road of south-east and south Asia BUT this same Hasina and her awami league regime refused to recognized that fact. Instead, Hasina, her regime and her propaganda support system propagating that Bangladesh is surrounded by india and need to be indian subservient. Whatever hint of change of heart people are seeing in Hasina, is just a tantrum play to clean her indian stooge image.
In reality all indian subservient acts by Hasina and her awami league are ongoing, in full swing.
