PM to address 74th UNGA today

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will address the 74th session of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in New York today (Friday).

The prime minister is scheduled to deliver the country statement at the General Assembly Hall in the UN Headquarters between 5.30pm and 6pm local time.

Sheikh Hasina will deliver the statement in Bangla like every year in the past.

This year’s theme of the general debate is “Galvanizing multilateral efforts for poverty eradication, quality education, climate action and inclusion”.

The prime minister is expected to place a four-point proposal to solve the protracted Rohingya crisis.

Apart from the Rohingya issue, the premier will focus on Bangladesh’s development advancement, inclusive economy, progress in building digital Bangladesh, epoch-making success in education and health sectors and leading role in women empowerment.
