Chief Advisor Message

I am very much pleased to see the people of Brihattar Chattogram (greater Chittagong) residing in Australia, especially in Sydney, are committed to their root while at the same time keen to contribute to the Australian society at large. Having lived away from my birthplace for more than 4 decades, I have realised how important it is to maintain ties to one's heritage, and pay-back to the country that has equipped us to venture abroad, seeking our fortunes. We need to strengthen our fraternity for both supporting our fellow Chatgaiyas (Chittagonian) who are not as fortunate as us and contributing to the richness of Australian multiculturalism. I am confident that the Brihattar Chattogram Samity will fulfill its mssion of vitalising fraternity among Chatgaiyas, maintaining ties with their root, contributing to their adopted home and strengthening the bridge between their places of birth and residence for the progress of both.
Thank You.
