Bangladesh, UK to hold first strategic dialogue
Bangladesh and the United Kingdom will hold their first ever strategic dialogue later this month with a view to strengthening bilateral relations between the two countries. UK Minister for Asia and the Pacific Alok Sharma and Bangladesh Foreign Minister Abul Hassan Mahmood Ali agreed to hold the dialogue during a meeting on Friday. The dialogue will be held between the foreign secretary of Bangladesh and the permanent undersecretary of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office. At the meeting, UK Minister Sharma said he felt optimistic that the dialogue would play an important role in further strengthening and enhancing Bangladesh-UK relations. Sharma arrived in Dhaka on March 2 on a three-day visit to Bangladesh. Both ministers expressed satisfaction with the existing cordial relations between the two countries. They discussed issues of mutual interest, particularly focusing on enhanced bilateral trade and investment. Mahmood Ali appreciated the involvement of London-based DP Rail in constructing the rail link between the Payra Port and Dhaka. He encouraged further investment from the UK in areas like infrastructure, energy and power, ICT, and healthcare, and reiterated that British trade delegations should visit Bangladesh to develop business partnerships. The ministers also exchanged views on relevant global and regional issues including Brexit, the revival of Commonwealth ties, and the Rohingya crisis.
