PEOPLE-TO-PEOPLE CONTACT

 The people-to-people contact between Bangladesh and France is particularly strong. The people of France spontaneously came forward, under the leadership of the renowned French thinker and philosopher Mr. André Malraux, to mobilize international public opinion in support of Liberation war in 1971. 

According to the most recent French government statistics, there are about 12,000 Bangladeshis who have obtained either French citizenship or resident permit in France. Bangladeshis are mainly employed in the service sector including restaurants. Some of the Bangladeshis have small business establishments and restaurants. A small number of Bangladeshis are also employed as professionals, like doctors, engineers, and computer programmers.

Some French NGOs such as 'Friendship', Partners Bangladesh, Handicap International, Aide Médicale,  Développement, Kinésithérapeutes Du Monde, SOLINFO etc. Run various programs to help underprivileged people in various areas in Bangladesh.
