Abdul Hamid, at the Presidential Palace in the Bangladeshi Capital of Dhaka. He  was accompanied by his spouse, Dr. Olga V. Gauci.


Serving as Malta’s High Commissioner of the Republic of  Malta to India since September 2020, H.E. Reuben Gauci travelled to Dhaka, Bangladesh within the period 21-26 March 2022 in order to submit credentials in view of the fact that the High Commission of Malta to India is also accredited as Malta’s High Commission to the neighbouring country of Bangladesh.


During his visit, High Commissioner Gauci also met with the Foreign Minister of Bangladesh, H.E. A.K. Momen, the Speaker of the House of Parliament, the Hon Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury  and the Ambassador of the European Union to Bangladesh, H.E. Charles Whiteley.

  

Malta and Bangladesh established diplomatic relations  on 20 December 1979. Bangladesh is a country in South Asia, located on the Bay of Bengal. It is surrounded almost entirely by neighbouring India. At the moment Malta is seeing a steadfast increase in the number of Bangladeshi workers travelling to the island. 

 

High Commissioner  Reuben Gauci showed his sincere appreciation to the Honorary Consul of Malta in Dhaka,  Mr Shoeb Chowdhary for his excellent hospitality and the hosting of a lavish reception in honour of the presentation of credentials.
