 International Responsibility:

Bangladesh inherited the partnership in the Single Convention on Narcotics Drugs, 1961. It also became a signatory to the Convention on Psychotropic Substances 1971 and the UN convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances in 1988. It has signed and ratified the SAARC Convention on Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances of 1990. Its Parliament ratified all the UN Conventions to support, advance and cooperate with international efforts to combat and control the drug menace. International day Against Drug Abuse and its Illicit Trafficking is celebrated on the 26 June each year through a variety of programs. Bangladesh entered into a bilateral agreement on technical assistance with the USA in 1993 for drug abuse prevention and control and received various equipment for drug abuse prevention and control. We also receive facilities for domestic and overseas training, fellowships and study tours from the DEA, INM, USIA of USA, JICA of Japan and from the Governments of UK and France. We are also provided with training facilities from DAP of the Colombo Plan Bureau, the SAARC, the UNESCO, the ILO and the UNODC. We  hosted a good number of SAARC Workshop, Seminar and Symposium during last few years.
