PV Desk : Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday said Bangladesh is now on right track to attain the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) due to her government’s time-befitting initiatives.

“We achieved spectacular success in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and we’re already on right track to achieve the SDGs,” she said while replying questions in an interview session at the “Future Sustainability Summit”.

The interview session titled ‘The Critical Role of Women in Delivering Climate Action’ of the Future Sustainability Summit was held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre here.

PM’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters after the event.

Stating that Bangladesh was closely engaged with the negotiations to develop the SDGs at the United Nations, the prime minister said, “We consider that it (developing SDGs) is a historic decision taken by all countries for the people of the world.”

She came up with the opinion that if development is not visible for long term and rather creates discrimination and further inequality, then this may be considered as material growth not development.
