UK, BD to work together on long list of things: Envoy
The UK is keen to work with Bangladesh in different areas including business and trade and international forums through very close diaspora links.
"There is a long list of things that Britain and Bangladesh work together through very close diaspora links, long historic connections and growing business links," Newly appointed British High Commissioner to Bangladesh Robert Chatterton Dickson said in a video message after presenting his credentials to President Abdul Hamid on Tuesday.
"I just like to say at this early stage how delighted I am to be here," Dickson said.
Robert Dickson, who arrived here on March 10, has been appointed as new British High Commissioner in succession to Alison Blake.
The High Commissioner said he is looking forward to working on all of those issues in the next few years. "I am proud to be representing British here in Bangladesh."
In his log diplomatic career, Dickson served as acting ambassador at British Embassy in Kabul since February 2015 and before that he was Deputy Ambassador from July 2013.
Dickson also served as additional director to Western Balkans Programme at Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).
