Our Mission

Bangladesh Expatriate Council (BEC) is a non-political and non-partisan organization, made up of expatriates from Bangladesh who care deeply about Bangladesh by becoming active citizens in their respective adopted countries for the purpose of guaranteeing that their voices and concerns are heard and acted upon by governments. Its main purpose is to work as an advocacy group for its expatriate community. It is run by the expatriates and for the interest of the expatriates.
• Its aim is not to divide but to strengthen the expatriate community.
• Its aim is to make a better Bangladesh that we all can feel proud of.
As such, we work together with people of all religions and ethnicities, as well as with other citizens of the world who agree with our mission and with our ideals.
Today, Bangladeshi Expatriates need to play an active role not just where they are currently settled as citizens but also in Bangladesh. If we are going to be able to change policy and influence decisions that affect our people, it is imperative that we cooperate with each other on commonalities that tie us together.
We are driven by the belief that Bangladesh expects better from its talented and highly skilled expatriate community that has settled in various parts of our planet.
We have a right and a responsibility to be involved in the world around us, especially matters that happen in Bangladesh. We simply cannot shut our eyes to what happens in Bangladesh. That involvement includes community, social and political action (without being looked upon as being partisans).
