Verma congratulated all the participants on being selected as part of the youth delegation and hoped that their visit would give them valuable insights into the developmental aspirations and the advances being made in India, as well as the transformation taking place in India-Bangladesh relations across wide ranging areas.
 
During their visit, the Bangladeshi youth will be interacting with key personalities and institutions in India belonging to government, academia, business, civil society and socio-cultural domains.
