It has already been two years since I arrived in Bangladesh as Ambassador of the US.
Looking back on the past year’s development in our bilateral relations, high-level exchanges and dialogues proceeded in a wide range of areas.
Since March this year, the COVID-19 pandemic has been affecting our interactions in various fields such as economic activities and cultural exchanges. However, even during this challenging time, the USA has been supporting Bangladesh in its fight against the pandemic. US government signed to provide Bangladesh government with the COVID-19 Crisis Response. Besides, the USA provided medical equipment for healthcare sectors as well as emergency support through international organizations.
We also continue to ensure the safety and security of the US nationals visiting/ living in Bangladesh. We would appreciate your opinion and cooperation toward building stronger ties between the USA and Bangladesh.
With 2020 coming to a close, we wanted to reach out and send our best wishes to you and yours. I hope that 2021 holds success and good fortune in any endeavor you pursue. It has been a pleasure getting to know the international business magazine The InCAP, all the best wishes to the entire team.
Happy New Year 2021!
Earl R. Miller
U.S. Ambassador to the People’s Republic of Bangladesh
