The Cabinet on Monday congratulated Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on her winning two prestigious awards from UN bodies -- one for her leadership in addressing the climate change and environmental issues and the other for using the information and communication technology for sustainable development.
The Cabinet adopted a resolution appreciating her leadership saying due to the political wisdom, steadfast determination and farsightedness of the Prime Minister, Bangladesh could emerge as a glaring example of total development and Bangladesh's successes could draw the attention of the international community.
United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) conferred the "Champions of the Earth Award" and International Telecommunication Union (ITU) of the UN conferred the "ICTs in Sustainable Development Award" on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina during the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) last month in New York.
Briefing reporters after the Cabinet meeting, Cabinet Secretary M Musharraf Hossain Bhuiyan said the Cabinet appreciated very successful visit of the Prime Minister to New York.
