KATHMANDU: Prime Minister (PM) Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said that concerted efforts and solidarity for the implementation of all decisions and commitments are instrumental in making the region prosperous, resilient, and sustainable.

He said this in a message to the governments and people of the BIMSTEC (Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation) Member States today on the occasion of the 26th Anniversary of BIMSTEC.

The BIMSTEC has completed the journey of a quarter century since its establishment in 1997, he said, adding that we all are struggling hard for a sustainable recovery from the adverse impacts of the pandemics like COVID-19, the financial hardships and disrupted supply chains, which have aggravated further to our efforts in achieving developmental goals in the region.

Global warming, climate change, natural disasters and ecological imbalances have added more challenges to our efforts in alleviating poverty and achieving sustainable development goals for the member states.

PM Dahal viewed the region with diversity in geography but closeness in cultural and civilizational values bringing together the South and Southeast Asian Member States for meeting the aspirations of about 1.6 billion people.

With the adoption of BIMSTEC Charter, and reconstitution of the BIMSTEC areas of cooperation, the Fifth Summit of BIMSTEC has given new momentum to the regional process, according to him.

PM Dahal believed it is prime time to put our concerted efforts as a region to deal with all our common issues and challenges by transforming the region’s potential into a reality for the benefit of our people.

“As an active member of BIMSTEC, we are delighted to lead the People to People Contact Sector as one of the important areas of the BIMSTEC cooperation and look forward to working with all Member States for cultivating fruitful connections among the peoples of the region with new ways and dimensions,” he said.

“I am confident that the 6th BIMSTEC Summit scheduled to be held in 2023 under the chairmanship of the Kingdom of Thailand will have extensive deliberations for furthering the economic growth, social progress and sustainable development of the region,” PM Dahal stated.

Moreover, PM Dahal said we cherish the 26th Anniversary of BIMSTEC with commitments for actions to collective responsibility and common prosperity.
