Greetings from the Consul General of Bangladesh

Dear Web visitor,
It is my pleasure to welcome to the official website of the Consulate General of Bangladesh, Los Angeles! Though the website has been designed predominantly to provide information on consular matters and other services offered by the Mission, I am inclined to believe that it will play a vital role to create a bridge between the Consulate and Bangladesh Diaspora residing within the Consulate's jurisdiction and beyond. The website also provides information on the investment opportunities, trade, commerce and tourism, by connecting to the links of the relevant websites. Recently a photo gallery has been installed on the Mission's various activities. Any suggestions with regard to the improvement/ modification of the website will be welcome.

Tareque Muhammad
Consul General of Bangladesh, Los Angeles
