Tourism Board, Friendship to explore traditional heritage

DHAKA, May 23, 2022 (BSS) - Bangladesh Tourism Board and social organisation 
Friendship today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for working 
together to flourish the Bengal's traditional heritages and boat tourism. 

Chief Executive Officer (additional charge) and Marketing, Planning and 
Public Relation Director of the Tourism Board Abu Tahir Muhammad Zaber and 
Friendship founder Runa Khan signed the two-year term MoU on behalf of their 
respective sides at a function at Bangladesh Tourism Board office in the 
city's Agargaon area, said a press release. 

Speaking at the function, Zaber said there are many places in riverine 
country Bangladesh having six seasons that can attract tourists.

Noting that different kinds of boat, traditional Bengali foods Pitha-Phuli-
Payes (cake and pudding type foods) and nature attract all, he said it's 
possible to attract the foreign tourists if these heritages can be projected 

Runa Khan said Friendship has bonded partnership with the Tourism Board for 
flourishing the development tourism. Local heritages will be projected in 
those areas, where Friendship is implementing different programmes, through 
development tourism, she added.

Samples of traditional boat of the riverine country Bangladesh are being 
displayed at different programmes in home and abroad by the Friendship, Runa
