Following is the text of UN Secretary-General António Guterres’ video message:

"Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am delighted that Bangladesh has fulfilled the criteria for graduation from the world’s least developed countries.
This is a clear signal that the country is building an inclusive and thriving economy, with a commitment to lifting millions of people from poverty and hunger.
I also commend Bangladesh’s achievements in women's empowerment and access to education.
Graduation is a milestone.  Strong vision, national leadership and sound policies and programmes will be crucial as Bangladesh strives to become a middle-income country and implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The United Nations will continue to support Bangladesh in this journey."
