May 8, 2007, 3:00 - 5:00 PM - Hudson Institute, Washington, D.C. Headquarters
The Carnegie Endowment, the Center for Strategic and International Studies and the Hudson Institute invite you to attend:
THE ROLE OF BANGLADESH IN SOUTH ASIAN COOPERATION
Ambassador Farooq Sobhan
President, Bangladesh Enterprise Institute and Special Envoy, Government of Bangladesh
Ambassador Teresita Schaffer
Center for Strategic and International Studies
Bangladesh hoped that developing regional partnerships, such as the South Asian Association of Regional Cooperation (SAARC), would bring prosperity and a better life for millions of people living in the South Asian region. The seed of regional cooperation continues to grow through the intensification of the SAARC process, and Bangladesh’s urge for people to people connectivity is now embedded in the spirit of SAARC. This development has important ramifications for cooperation in all spheres of political, economical, cultural, trade and investment, and development.
Although the region enjoys a shared philosophical, cultural, and intellectual heritage, the lack of active and visible cooperation hampers its ability to meet the challenges posed by poverty, development, and disaster reduction, as well as to ensure the welfare of its people. In his address, Ambassador Farooq Sobhan will discuss these challenges and how new areas of regional cooperation could impact global security and stability. After Ambassador Sobhan’s presentation, Frederic Grare will invite the audience to participate in the discussion.
