Bangladesh-Bangabandhu Room opened at FAO HQ

The Bangladesh-Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Room was inaugurated on Monday at the headquarters of Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Rome.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who is now in Rome to attend the UN Food Systems Summit+2 Stocktaking Moment (UNFSS+2), inaugurated the room. FAO Director-General QU Dongyu was present at the event.

The establishment of the room marks the celebration of the 100th birth anniversary of Bangabandhu.

The prime minister said that her country is delighted to have a little piece of Bangladesh inside the FAO Headquarters.

She said Bangladesh became a member of FAO in 1973 under the guidance of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

This room also stands for the 50 years of excellent partnership between Bangladesh and FAO, she added.

The newly furnished room shows an image of Bangabandhu, depicted in a paddy field by one of Bangladesh’s farmers. This artistic work was done during the “Mujib Year” — Bangabandhu’s birth centenary observed in 2020-21.
