Bangladesh to invest in Nepal hydro-power
The minister made the announcement after a meeting with Romi Gauchan Thakali, the commerce minister of Nepal, yesterday. A Nepali delegation led by Thakali met with Tofail to discuss bilateral trade. “There are a lot of opportunities for investment in Nepal. We will jointly invest in hydroelectricity in Nepal and benefit from the produced electricity. We would like to import this power to Bangladesh,” Tofail Ahmed told reporters after the meeting. He added: “Nepal is a longtime ally and we would like to strengthen our ties through a better economic relationship.” Currently the project’s feasibility study is in progress. As per the plan, Bangladesh will be given priority to import the electricity. Tofail also said that he is hopeful about establishing rail connections with Nepal by 2018. The two nations recently became part of the Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal (BBIN).
