During these times where the UK finds itself in unprecedented and unchartered territory, especially following the recent referendum, it has become more important than ever before to highlight the brilliant contributions of migrant communities such as ours to the UK.
Of course we are now third and fourth generation British Bangladeshis and a part of the fabric of society. We are part of the mainstream.
The publication and the profile contained within it do not cease to enlighten me. The lives of the people who feature in the publication are so rich in colour and success.
The youth amongst the British Bangladeshis are making more significant progress than ever before. They are the flag bearers and I believe that British Bangladeshis will continue to go from strength to strength.
We are forever grateful to our sponsors, supporters and well-wishers, for without them the publication would not be where it is today.
I hope you enjoy reading this the ninth edition of this wonderful community initiative.
