serve as a great bridge to bind peoples across culture. The High Commissioner continued that
the High Commission organized the festival with the clear purpose of strengthening the
people-to-people contacts between the friendly countries of Bangladesh and Singapore. He

and that helps to bring people closer.
During the festival, Mr. Habibur Rahman, an acclaimed chef from the Pan-Pacific
