The 100-member Bangladesh Youth Delegation will leave for India on Wednesday.

The delegation includes journalists, sportspersons, doctors, artists and engineers, among others. 

The High Commission of India in Dhaka organised a flag-off ceremony for the delegation at Sheraton Hotel on Tuesday night with minister for road, transport and bridges division Obaidul Quader as the chief guest. 

Dr. Binoy George, the Deputy High Commissioner of India, addressed the members of the delegation.

 Arifin Shuvoo, prominent film actor and television personality of Bangladesh, was the special invitee for the event.

The delegation will embark on an eight day visit to India on Wednesday, the HighCommission said.

 In their week long visit, they will be interacting with key personalities and institutions in India, ranging from the government, educational, business and science and technology fields.

 The delegation will also be visiting sites of historical and cultural significance in India.

 "The travel itinerary has been specifically designed to provide an opportunity for the delegates to experience the rich and diverse heritage of India."

The Bangladesh Youth Delegation programme started in 2012. 

This year marks the eighth edition, and this is the first time that auditions for selecting delegates took place outside Dhaka in cities like Rajshahi and Chattogram. 

"The process was very well received and the High Commission was pleased to note the zeal and enthusiasm of the participants during the entire selection process," the High Commission said.
