Bangladesh and the UK have historic relations and traditional friendly ties. Bangladesh recalls with deep gratitude the support of the British people across various constituencies and that of the then British political leaders during the Liberation War in 1971. Being released from Pakistani prison, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman visited London to meet the then British Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath, before returning to Bangladesh on 10 January 1972. This laid the foundation of the special nature of the relationship between the two friendly countries. In many areas including, trade, investment, education, people-to-people contact and cooperation in many international fora, the bilateral relations between Bangladesh and the United Kingdom expanded and deepened over the years. Trade, investment and broader economic relations between the two countries have expanded in-depth and dimension over the years. The UK is the 3rd single largest destination for Bangladesh’s exports, after the United States and Germany. Over the years Bangladesh’s exports to the UK enjoys steady annual growth. In this summit, a high-level delegation team from Bangladesh will be attended by angel investors, institutional investors, NRBs and Institutions from the United Kingdom.
