One purpose of this website is to provide news and information about Sweden, that we hope, will be contributing to a further deepening and widening of the links between Bangladesh and Sweden.

Our ambition is to keep the information up-to-date and responsive to the needs of those visiting our website. In order to be able to do so we would very much welcome any comments that you may have on the information that we are providing.
