On September 6, the Deputy Prime Minister met with the Minister of Investment and Foreign Trade of the Republic of Uzbekistan S. Umaruzakov and the Adviser to the Prime Minister of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh Salman Fazlur Rahman.
At that time, they discussed in detail the current agenda of bilateral cooperation in the areas of investment, trade, economic, industrial, cultural and humanitarian.
The establishment of industrial cooperation in areas such as agriculture, textiles, leather and footwear and pharmaceutical industries through the creation of joint ventures between the two countries has been declared as a prerequisite for the development of the countries.
There is also an agreement on the development and approval of a ‘road map’ for the development of industrial cooperation.
The intergovernmental dialogue needed to be intensified in order to quickly resolve and establish issues of mutual interest.
