Hasina among 100 leading global thinkers
Hasina, also president of the ruling party in Bangladesh, is among the 13 top global thinkers in the category "Decision-Makers", said in a press release of Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
She has been named as a leading global thinker for her outstanding contribution in addressing the issue of climate change.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Russian President Vladimir Putin and President of Mauritius Ameenah Gurib are named along with the Bangladesh’s premier as leading global thinkers in the category this year.
Every year, Foreign Policy magazine recognizes the world’s preeminent thinking leaders in its annual issue, "100 Leading Global Thinkers".
The list, started in 2009, has become one of Foreign Policy's most-read features. Honorees include a wide range of leaders, advocates, innovators, artists, government officials, and visionaries from around the world.
The editors of Foreign Policy select the 100 Global Thinkers based on their standout contributions over the past year and their ability to translate ideas into action that change and shape the world.
In the past, US President Barack Obama, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Mayanmar Leader Aung San Suu Kyi and former Us President Bill Cliton were among the global leaders placed in this esteemed list.
