Background Ministry of Civil Aviation and Tourism was a ministry under central government before independence. After independence of Bangladesh in 1971 matters relating to communication and tourism were vested with the Ministry of Commerce. In 1972, Civil Aviation Division was created and brought under the Ministry of Shipping, Inland Water Transport and Civil Aviation. However, an independent Ministry of Civil Aviation and Tourism was created in August 1975. This again became a Division under the Ministry of Communication in January 1976. A separate Ministry of Civil Aviation and Tourism was created again in December 1977. On 24th March 1982 the ministry was abolished and Civil Aviation and tourism Division became a new Division under the Ministry of Defense.
