Brunei keen to develop trade ties with Bangladesh


DHAKA, Sept 9, 2018 (BSS) – A business delegation of Brunei, led by Permanent Secretary of the Brunei Foreign Affairs and Trade Ministry Siti Norishan Abdul Ghafor, today expressed their interest to develop the existing trade relations with Bangladesh.

The delegation expressed their interest while meeting the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) at its board room in the city, said a press release.

FBCCI President M Shafiul Islam (Mohiuddin) chaired the meeting while FBCCI directors Sharita Millat, Priti Chakraborty, S. M. Shafiuzzaman, Md. Nizam Uddin, Kohinur Islam, Kazi Belayet Hossain and Hafez Harun-Or-Roshid were present.

Shafiul Islam said Bangladesh has become a business hub since the government is providing all sorts of supports to develop all sectors, including infrastructure and communication.

“Bangladesh achieved consistent GDP growth of over 6 percent during the last couple of years and above 7 percent GDP growth in the past two years,” he added.

Mentioning Brunei as a potential business hub in this region, the delegation expressed their interest to take the bilateral relations in a significant height.
