Global and regional initiatives in addition to tackling corona in the country, US 50,000 grant to the International Fund for Vaccine Innovation, five proposals to the world to tackle the post-COVID-19 situation
Hon’ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina did not stop at taking initiative only in the country to fight coronavirus. He has also been praised for global and regional initiatives. In the meantime, the Hon’ble Prime Minister of Bangladesh has also taken a leading role in the international initiative to invent the corona vaccine. Bangladesh has announced to donate 50,000 US dollars to the ‘Global Citizen’ fund.
Besides, Hon’ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is also working to create funds for South Asian countries to deal with the economic adverse effects of coronavirus.
In the midst of the deadly coronavirus, another fatal disaster, Cyclone Amphan, had to deal with the situation with a strong hand. In such a situation, the national and international initiatives of Bangabandhu Kanya are being appreciated in many countries of the world.
In an article titled ‘Fighting Cyclones and Coronavirus: How We Evacuated During a Pandemic’ in the British daily The Guardian on June 3, Hon’ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina wrote. We can teach others to deal with similar dangers. At the World Economic Forum in April, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina wrote a five-point proposal to the world to tackle the Corona outbreak, writing, “The world is fighting against an unknown and unseen enemy today. This enemy has no boundaries, no class.
The most unfortunate thing is that this enemy is showing the flaws of our management. In such a situation, we will be able to win the war against this Kavid-19 not by being isolated, but by cooperating with each other. ’
The world’s most popular Forbes magazine has named Hon’ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as one of the most successful women leaders in tackling corona.
Sheikh Hasina’s five proposals to the world: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has given five proposals to the World Economic Forum against Corona. One of the five proposals made by the Prime Minister is to ‘think anew to eliminate inequality’. In the proposal, the Prime Minister said, “Poverty and inequality will increase very fast in this society we know.”
In the last decade, we have been able to lift half of our poor people out of poverty. Many of them will return to poverty again. People will fall into the trap of debt. Eighty-five percent of our people are employed in the informal sector. Our SME (loan system) is hurting badly. This situation is not very different from other countries in South Asia or countries in Africa.
And that’s why everyone in the world should think about how to make people better now. We need to think about how to tackle inequality, help the poor, and take our economy to the pre-COVID (before COVID 19 infection) stage. In his second proposal, he said, “Strong global leadership like the G-7, G-20, and OECD is needed.”
The Prime Minister wrote in his explanation that multilateral management led by the United Nations must come forward. In this case, I am referring to Professor Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum’s Infectious Diseases as the focus of the Global Risk Report 2020. The plight of the global health sector is highlighted here. And that is why the formation of forums like the Quid Action Platform and the Regional Action Group is the right move at this time. I believe that in addition to this, as an additional initiative, in collaboration with other important organizations such as the United Nations, the next plan of COVID-19 should be decided.
“We have to come up with new business rules,” she said in a statement. “We have already seen changes in the world’s business, workplace, and manufacturing systems,” he said. And with the end of this COVID era, new rules and practices of business will begin. In the meantime, we have seen that many global organizations in the supply chain are not behaving responsibly. I think the privileged group of capitalism is running an experiment through this.
And countries like Bangladesh need to adopt new plans and management to keep pace with these issues. “We have to work together out of a sense of global responsibility,” he said in the fourth proposal. Referring to the issue of migrant workers here, he said that migrant workers are contributing from the forefront in the way of income of rich countries. But suddenly a difficult situation has arisen for these workers. They are even losing their jobs. Due to this, the economy of South Asia is also at risk. And that’s why we have to work together out of a sense of global responsibility. In the context of Bangladesh, we have not run away from our sense of responsibility. You may be aware that the largest refugee camp in the world is currently in our country. And our ‘COVID-19’ war plan has been made with these 11 lakh Rohingyas.
In her latest proposal, Sheikh Hasina said, “The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) will help prepare for the future.” There, he said, Bangladesh has become a champion in economic digitization under our ‘A2I’ program through new innovations in the last decade. And even in the midst of this epidemic, we have used a number of technological tools, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and mobile tracking, to detect infections. And as we prepare for the future, we first need innovative solutions to problems. Innovative solutions are needed, especially in the areas of health, education, agriculture, and the supply chain. The use of technology will become very important in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. And in such a situation, the World Economic Forum can play a very important role.
Bangladesh announces US 50,000 for Vaccine Innovation Fund: Bangladesh has announced 50,000 for the Global Citizen Fund for the vaccine innovation of COVID-19. According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Bangladesh is happy to announce the provision of US ৫০ 50,000 for safe and effective vaccine innovation and easy availability. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has provided this money to address the COVID-19 of marginalized communities and to ensure health care on the basis of fairness and equality. Bangladesh announced the funding at the ‘Global Goal: Unit for Our Future – The Summit’ organized by the European Commission and Global Citizen to raise additional funds for the development of coronavirus vaccines, tests, and treatment.
Foreign Minister. AK Abdul Momen said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been leading the way in tackling the unprecedented crisis caused by the coronavirus epidemic. He said that Bangladesh was committed to its responsibility in the international arena to overcome this calamity and at the same time expected Bangladesh to act responsibly from other partners. Momen added, “Under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Bangladesh has always attached importance to the principles of equality, justice, and national ownership.” This is the effort of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to ensure that those who need this service the most get it and no one is left out. Bangladesh has provided this assistance with the aim of providing services to all the people of the world on the basis of equality.
