Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka Harsh Vardhan Shringla said the relationship between India and Bangladesh is now passing a golden era. Terming the relations better than ever, he said, “The ties between both the neighbouring countries are going beyond a ‘strategic partnership’.”
He said this while inaugurating the 5th two-day ‘India Education Fair 2018’ as chief guest at the convention hall of Krishibid Institution (KIB) in the capital on Wednesday.
The fair was organised by South East Asia (SAPE) Events and Media Private Limited. SAPE also hosts such education fairs in Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Nepal, Indonesia, Myanmar, Vietnam and Cambodia.
Shringla said the relationship at the political level between the two countries is very excellent while people to people contact is excellent too. He said both Bangladesh and India lack skilled resources at the national level, so this kind of programmes will contribute to producing potential human resources.
Founder of SAPE Sanjoy Thapa said the fair will create an opportunity for Bangladeshi students and parents to meet and discuss with officers from different Indian schools, colleges and universities directly.
More than 30 leading universities of India, including Vellore Institute of Technology, SRM University and Sharda University, are participating in the fair. The fair will remain open from 10am and 6pm till July 19.
