Introduction to Progress Magazine and its Importance




Bangladesh launched the first issue of Progress Magazine on the 11th of March, 2023, at a Banani restaurant in Dhaka. His Excellency Mr. Yousef SY Ramadan, the Ambassador of Palestine to Bangladesh, graced the occasion as Chief Guest.

Editor of Progress Adv. Saquib Rahman stated that the magazine focuses to complete the gap between short newspaper pieces and lengthy academic analyses. He added that Progress is a platform for particularly the young members of civil society to contribute.

His Excellency Mr. Yousef SY Ramadan applauded the idea of forming such a magazine and pointed out how the educated people of all countries tend to have more confidence in the media than in their governments.

However, Progress might be a brilliant addition for them to voice their opinions. Editorial Advisor of Progress Prof. Md. Rizwanul Islam said that civil society should be politically unbiased and that it is necessary that the pieces in the magazine portray reality.

Progress aspires to be a triannual civil society magazine publishing credible, compelling and cutting-edge insights and analysis. Though not limited to, the contents sit loosely within the rules of law, rights, governance, policies, diplomatic views on Bangladesh and matters of public interests. The periodical intends to create a connection between the officials, foreign missions and conscious citizens to uphold, acknowledge and solve complex problems toward a more progressive Bangladesh.

Complementary copies of this first issue of Progress have been disseminated to the Ambassadors and High Commissioners, alongside scholars from universities of high repute.
