50 Years of Growing Bangladesh
Year : 1971 - 2021
সারা বিশ্বের বিস্ময়, তুমি আমার অহংকার
Bangladesh is a secular democratic country. We started our journey in 1971 and in 2021 have completed 50 years of history. We are witnessing great progress in all sectors of economy, and a vibrant political, social and cultural life.
Bangladesh is a friend of the United States of America. Bangladeshi immigrants are making a positive impact in all walks of life in their adopted country. In Massachusetts and in New England, the first generation of immigrants are bringing up our second generation of Bangladeshi-Americans with dignity and respect for American history and institutions. The new generation is ready to contribute to the success of our native country and to the economy and culture of the United States of America we now call home.
In the Golden Jubilee year of Bangladesh, NEBAF is bringing special programs that highlight Bangladeshi history, language and culture as well as our friendship with America. Please stay with us.
