$5 lakh South Korean help for voter list project

To assist Bangladesh's effort to hold a credible election, the Government of the Republic of Korea has donated $5 lakh for 'Preparation of Electoral Roll with Photographs (PERP)' project, says a press release.
Ambassador of the Republic of Korea Park Suk Bum said “We sincerely hope that Korea's contribution to the efforts of the Bangladeshi Government for credible, safe and fair election would lead to achieve good governance and national development. Korean people are pleased to participate in the international effort in helping Bangladesh overcome difficulties and make progress for the future.”
He signed a Cost Sharing Agreement with Renata Dessallien, resident representative of the United Nations Development Programme, for Korea's contribution to the UNDP pool fund to finance the PERP project.
PERP project is jointly funded by the government of Bangladesh and other major development partners-- UNDP, UK, the EC, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark and the Republic of Korea.
Earlier, UNDP signed an agreement with the Economic Relations Division (ERD) and the Bangladesh Election Commission (BEC) for initiating the PERP project.
