Ambassador Mahbub’s Beijing tenure extended by 1 year

The tenure of Mahbub Uz Zaman, Bangladesh ambassador to China, has been extended for another year.

The public administration ministry issued a gazette notification Thursday confirming his contractual reappointment.

The previous conditions of the appointment will remain unchanged, it said.

The government extended the tenure of Mahbub with a one-year contractual appointment in August 2020 after appointing him as the Bangladesh ambassador to China in 2019.

He served as the secretary of the Asia and Pacific Wing of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs before heading for Beijing. The career diplomat also served as the Bangladesh high commissioner to Singapore and Sri Lanka.

Mahbub belongs to the 1985 batch of Bangladesh Civil Service Foreign Affairs cadre.
