Dear visitor,

Thank you for visiting the website of the Embassy of Switzerland in Bangladesh.

With over five decades of solid partnership, Switzerland and Bangladesh have built a strong foundation between our two countries. Our friendly bilateral relations stem from a long history and successful collaboration on humanitarian aid, development and economic cooperation, cultural engagement as well as political exchanges.


Our economic relations are robust, exemplified by an annual bilateral trade exceeding $1 billion and Swiss investments in vital sectors. The dynamic economic engagement showcases Switzerland's commitment to continue being an active trading partner and supporter of Bangladesh's development journey.

Solidarity lies at the heart of our alliance. Switzerland's investment of over $1 billion in development cooperation and humanitarian aid in the past 50+ years underscores our dedication to fostering sustainable progress. Anchored in humanitarian principles, our support resonates deeply, particularly for the Rohingya refugee crisis in Cox’s Bazar.

As Bangladesh embarks on its journey towards graduating from the LDC group, our ongoing cooperation remains focused on sustainable and impactful development initiatives that will foster innovation, and facilitate greater business-to-business and people-to-people interactions. Switzerland remains dedicated to being a reliable partner for Bangladesh, built upon mutual respect and cooperation.

I look forward to working together with the people and the Government of Bangladesh, and anticipate a future where our multifaceted cooperation continues to flourish and our shared aspirations lead us to greater heights.

For Swiss citizens residing in Bangladesh, the Embassy stands ready to provide consular assistance and valuable information. Feel free to reach out for any support you may need.

With my best regards,

Reto Renggli
Ambassador of Switzerland to Bangladesh
