The ultimate purpose of BCYSA is to promote both country's philosophy, culture, policies, and positive diplomatic relationship through all possible effective activities that the member of BCYSA could become committed and visionary to be the ambassador of China to Bangladesh that they can make a tie to enhance cooperation between the two countries and deeper understanding among people of two great friendly nations and represent the legitimate aspirations and rights of Bangladeshis residing in China.
From independence onwards, Bangladeshi students and professionals have been traveling to China. Despite a long time has passed, no organization has been formed with Bangladeshi students and professionals living in China prior to 2016. Most of the students and professionals were involved in small groups through various social media platforms. Many have been working hard to bring all students and professionals living in China under one umbrella for their welfare and cooperation.
Soon after coming to China to pursue his Ph.D., the founding President of BCYSA, Professor Dr. Md. Shahabul Haque has felt the necessity of a voluntary organization for the Bangladeshi students and professionals residing in China. Fortunately, many students and professionals also expressed interest when he expressed his desire to form such an organization. Subsequently, while he was on a visit to China Radio International in Beijing, China, he met with Madam Yu Guangyue Anandi, Head of Bangla Department of Chinese Media Group, and shared his interest to form an organization of Bangladeshi students and professionals and she praised and encouraged the initiative.
Afterward, having held a meeting with a group of enthusiast individuals in China, on November 25, 2016, a new organization was formed with 13 members under the leadership of Professor Dr. Md. Shahabul Haque. As we know, this is the first and largest organization of Bangladeshi students and professionals living in China. Since then, every year BCYSA has been organizing its annual general meeting with the help of BCYSA's executive committee. And now, in its fifth year, BCYSA is run by its fifth executive committee.
BCYSA launched its website back in 2017 and operates all its activities through this online platform. BCYSA's online Bengali bi-annual "Mahaprachir" started its journey in June 2019 and the BCYSA-online news portal started its journey in October 2019 and has been publishing up to now. The organization also has a research wing where professionals in various fields are trained by experts. Every year, BCYSA presents the "BCYSA Community Award" to Bangladeshi students and professionals living in China in recognition of their exemplary achievements and contributions in bridging the gap and building friendships between the two countries.
In addition, BCYSA assists Bangladeshi students in obtaining scholarships from Chinese universities, employment in Chinese institutions, and business in China. BCYSA also provides assistance to individuals seeking help in various universities and cities in China. In this regard, BCYSA’s campus representatives play a vital role with regard to providing assistance for people in need. On the whole, BCYSA plays a phenomenal role to promote both country's philosophy, culture, and positive diplomatic relations between the two countries.
