President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina have greeted US president-elect Joe Biden and vice-president-elect Kamala Harris.
In his message to Joe Biden, the president said the existing relationship between Bangladesh and the United States is excellent.
He hoped that the ties between the two countries would reach a new height and expand in various fields, including trade and investment, under the leadership of the newly elected president of the United States.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has congratulated US President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, saying she foresees the bilateral relationship reaching higher heights in the coming days.
“Indeed, I look forward to working closely with you in attaining those ideals as well as in effectively confronting the evils of terrorism, violent extremism, hatred, forced displacements as of the Rohingyas, and for the realization of a safer and a better world,” the prime minister wrote in her message to Biden.
On behalf of the government and the people of Bangladesh, and on her behalf, Hasina conveyed warmest congratulations to Biden on his victory in the November 3 presidential election. Biden will become the 46th President of the United States of America after he’s sworn in on January 20.
“I believe your resounding victory reflects the profound trust and confidence the people of your great country have in your extraordinary leadership proven over four decades of devotion and dedication towards their welfare, and that of the USA,” she said.
Hasina said she also believes that their sagacity and astute stewardship will also energize the US in leading the world into a new era of global peace, and international cooperation in securing prosperity, and unity in facing the challenges of climate change.
