The World Radio Day-2021, a day to celebrate radio as a medium, will be observed in the country as elsewhere across the globe tomorrow highlighting the importance of radio.

The objective of the day is to raise awareness about the importance of radio, facilitate access to information through radio and enhance networking among broadcasters with this year’s theme “New World, New Radio”.

On the eve of the day, President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate messages greeting all concerned, including officers, employees, technicians and audience of the Bangladesh Betar and wishing all programmes of the day a success.

In his message, the President said Bangladesh Betar is the oldest and largest media in the country. Swadhin Bangla Betar Kendra, as the second front during the great war of liberation in 1971, played an important role in forming public opinion in favor of independence and inspiring the freedom fighters, he added.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in her message said the use of radio has increased in all developing countries like Bangladesh as it has emerged as the oldest, popular and effective medium.
