Dhaka Celebrates “OIC City of Tourism 2019”
Bangladesh has officially celebrated “OIC City of Tourism 2019” on 11th July 2019 at Hotel InterContinental in Dhaka. The event has successfully exhibited 400-years rich Muslim heritage of the old city before the invited international guests, especially from Islamic nations.
Tourism ministers of OIC member states chose Dhaka to become the host of “OIC City of Tourism 2019” at the last year’s Islamic Conference of Tourism Ministers (ICTM). As a result, Dhaka took special measure for this event.
The honorable Prime Minister of Bangladesh Government, Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the event at Hotel InterContinental in presence of representatives from more than 30 OIC member states, including OIC Assistant Secretary General Musa Kulaklikaya.
Representatives from OIC member states took a tour around the city in the afternoon under the supervision of Bangladesh Tourism Board (BTB) and they also explored 500 years old Panam City, Narayanganj in the following day.
