Turkish Ambassador to Bangladesh Mustafa Osman Turan on Saturday said the Padma Bridge will connect people, boost trade and make life easier in Bangladesh.

“Just like individuals, nations also have dreams. Today all Bangladeshis’ dream to cross the mighty Padma River over a bridge has come true,” he said after attending the formal inaugural ceremony of the Padma Bridge.

The ambassador said Bangladesh financed this mega project from its own resources which is another reason to be proud of this achievement on the way to sustainable development.

“If you have never been in Bangladesh, the biggest delta in the world where rivers are abundant and cut this beautiful green land into pieces, it is hard to imagine how a bridge could be such a powerful dream,” said the Turkish envoy.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina formally inaugurated the Padma Bridge on Saturday.
