I am very pleased to learn that the Chevening Website has been re-launched. I am confident that this re-launched website along with CSB’s yearly journal, Newsletter, and very recently published CSB Directory, will help to maintain strong networking throughout Bangladesh and abroad. I urge all Bangladeshi Chevening Scholars to join the CSB and make a contribution, and help raise the profile of the scheme. I hope the CSB, becomes an active and vibrant organisation throughout the country, and makes a valued contribution to the nurturing of future leaders and opinion formers in Bangladesh.
