Message from the Foreign Minister, Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh

Dr. A.K. Abdul Momen, MP


I am happy to note that Bangabandhu Chair at the Asian Institute of Technology is going to publish the second volume of ‘Bangabandhu Chair Special Issue of the International Energy Journal’ a research journal, dedicated exclusively to the Sustainable Energy Development discourse of Bangladesh. The publication comes with a promise to make a significant contribution to Sustainable Energy Development in Bangladesh as well as her long term adaptation to climate change.

Bangabandhu Chair was first established at AIT, Bangkok in 2018 in honour of the Father of Nation of Bangladesh Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman with a view to broadening our regional and global outreach in public (energy) policy discourse and particularly dissemination of knowledge on cutting edge technology to the service of developing societies. Under the tutelage of this Chair, a doctoral level advanced technological research has been supported keeping in mind sustainable development goals and strategies for the benefits of our people and the global community as a whole.

I take this opportunity to thank government of the Kingdom of Thailand and the AIT for their continuous support to the Bangabandhu Chair. I hope the Bangabandhu Chair Professor Dr. Joyashree Roy will continue her efforts at the AIT in setting a trend for exchange of knowledge among the scholars from different parts of the region and beyond. She deserves our sincere appreciation for presenting extremely complex and technically demanding subjects in a lucid and reader friendly manner.


I wish the Bangabandhu Chair special edition of International Energy Journal-published in the Mujib Year (2020-2021) – a grand success.
