The purpose of presenting the information related to the foreign Minister is to remind them of what they have achieved representing Sylhet. Academic Journey started from Sylhet, Bangladesh. Sylhet has the potential to develop partnership with the state of Massachusetts, USA. This will be beneficial for the Education consultants, IELTS Centres and the British Council. Abul Kalam Abdul Momen education portfolio will attract the next generation Sylhetis to Study subjects related to Economics, Law, Politics, International Development, International Trades.
International Trades there are potential for Sylhet to develop network in Riyadh for the gateway access to the Middle East. Gateway into Middle East will help Bangladesh Government manage resources without relying on India. After Reading the Article in relation to the Independence Day protest in Bangladesh, the India Journalist wrote Modi won Bangladesh people heart, this is an insult, researching the foreign Minister background he will be aware of the Sylhet Marathon Platform. The Sylhet Marathon platform is encouraging him to learn from his mistakes and remind him he represents Sylhet. This will encourage him to raise his voice and disagree with the decisions the Prime Minister makes.
I hope this article is beneficial for the Sylhet communities in Developed and Developing Economies.
