The issue of development of electric vehicles also came up for discussion in the meeting, said a press release of the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources.

The Indian high commissioner said India always looks at the relation with Bangladesh with dignity.

“Bangladesh could work as an energy hub for this region and this hub could be strengthened through exchange of electricity and technology, applying power and energy conservation and producing equipment.”

The issues of Bangladesh-India Friendship pipeline, cross-border pipeline by Indian H-Energy, cross-border pipeline by Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), power transmission line project, activities of Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC)-OVL, Bangladesh-India Friendship Power Company, and import of hydropower from Nepal and Bhutan were discussed in the meeting.
