Bangladesh has been asked by Denmark to join the "Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance (BOGA)," a project that is jointly directed by Costa Rica and Denmark and promises collaboration from the two nations in the food, agricultural, and ICT sectors.

Winnie Estrup Petersen, the Danish ambassador to Bangladesh, made the request during her goodbye visit to Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen on Sunday at the State Guest House-Padma.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the ambassador anticipated Bangladesh's success in the transition to green energy, focusing in particular on offshore wind energy generation in coastal areas with Danish investment and expertise.

The Danish Ambassador was congratulated by the Foreign Secretary for her unwavering efforts throughout her five years in Dhaka to elevate BD-Denmark relations to a new level.

He thanked the Ambassador for the Danish political support to the Rohingya crisis and urged for more support of the international community towards resolving the crisis at an early date, particularly early repatriation of the forcibly displaced Rohingyas, temporarily sheltered in Bangladesh, to their homeland Myanmar.

Foreign Secretary reaffirmed Bangladesh’s commitment to tackling climate change, green transition and sustainable infrastructure development.

The Danish Ambassador expressed her whole-hearted gratitude for receiving all-out support of the Bangladesh govt. during her tour of duty.

She underlined the issues of Rohingya crisis and war in Ukraine and hoped for solution of the crises at an early date with meaningful intervention of the global community.

The Foreign Secretary hosted a lunch in honour of the departing Ambassador at the end of the meeting and handed over a gift as memento.
