UN to acclaim Bangladesh on MDG performance

Sep 16, 2010

In the forthcoming General Assembly meeting, the UN will acknowledge Bangladesh’s performance on MDGs especially reducing child mortality which has garnered worldwide acclaim.

United Nations is to acknowledge Bangladesh for its achievements in UN-set Millennium Development Goal (MDG) next week as the world leaders join the 65th general assembly session of the highest global forum in New York.

"The United Nations will acknowledge Bangladesh's performance in attaining MDG goals during the UN General Assembly," Finance Minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith yesterday told a review meeting on the government's 'Ekti Bari, Ekti Khamar' project, also joined by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her office.

Bangladesh has already achieved several targets of the eight-point MDG goals and is on track to achieve the other goals within the deadline of 2015, said Muhith.

The country's achievements particularly in minimising the child mortality rate under the MDG 4 targets earned high global appreciation while the UN decided to formally acknowledge the performance, he added.

A UN spokesman in Dhaka supplemented the minister's comments saying the acknowledgement would be made in the form of an award during a three-day special summit on the MDGs to be kicked off in New York on September 20 as convened by the UN General Assembly.

The UN earlier appreciated Bangladesh's "noteworthy progress" in attaining MDGs saying Bangladesh had done remarkably and may well reach several of the MDG targets before the stipulated time of 2015.
