News Desk: Bangladesh is now the fastest growing economy in South Asia. It is like envying Bangladesh's progress in various fields besides achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals in the 50 years of independence.

However, the news of criticism and disasters is more in the eyes of the world media than the praise or positive news of Bangladesh. However, the news of the inauguration of the Padma Bridge has brought some changes in this regard.

News of the Padma Bridge in Bangladesh was published in several leading media of the world on Saturday. Notable among these were the headlines from Bloomberg, the Associated Press and NDTV.

According to a Bloomberg headline, Bangladesh successfully completed the bridge project, which was canceled by the World Bank a decade ago. In addition to mentioning Sheikh Hasina's personal victory, the US media also said that this bridge will play a role in increasing the country's GDP.

Meanwhile, the Associated Press (AP) says, the longest bridge in Bangladesh has been inaugurated today. Along with the construction strategy of the Padma Bridge, its political and economic importance has also been highlighted in the report.

On the other hand, NDTV reported that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has inaugurated the longest railway bridge in Bangladesh. Besides, among the Indian media, the news of Padma Bridge has made headlines in Hindustan Times, Times of India and Anandabazar. Mentioning the "Bridge of Dreams of 160 Million People" of Bangladesh, the inauguration ceremony and the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina were praised. The media congratulated India on its success in building an incredible bridge over the Ganges.

Illustrated reports of the Padma Bridge have been published in many media outlets in the country and abroad, including the French news agency AFP, international, Gulf News in the Middle East, and the Khaleej Times.
