Continuing a tradition of outreach across Bangladesh, the US Embassy is sponsoring "America Week" in Barisal from January 26-28.
America Week highlights the important ties between the people of the United States and Bangladesh by taking US Embassy activities to the people outside the capital. Chittagong, Khulna, Rajshahi and Sylhet have hosted past America Weeks.
This edition of America Week features presentations, outreach and site visits showcasing US Government-funded programs in Barisal.
Visitors will have the opportunity to learn how to study at a US university, apply for a US visa, or participate in a US Government development project.
