The Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister Muhammad Faruk Khan urged the investors of the Philippines to invest in the tourism industry of Bangladesh.

The minister made this call while meeting with the Ambassador of the Philippines Leo Tito L Ausan, Jr assigned to Bangladesh in the minister's office room in the Ministry of Civil Aviation and Tourism at the Secretariat on Wednesday.

The minister also said that if Philippine investors invest in Bangladesh's tourism industry, they will be provided with all kinds of support. 

Friendship between Bangladesh and the Philippines will be further strengthened through working together in the tourism and aviation industry.

Expressing interest in investing in the tourism industry of Bangladesh, the ambassador to the Philippines said that Bangladesh is a potential tourist destination with its rich culture and unique beautiful nature. 

He said that he would talk to investors from the Philippines to invest in Bangladesh's tourism industry. 

The ambassador also expressed his interest in establishing Dhaka-Manila direct air link.

In response, the minister of civil aviation and tourism Faruk said that since the existing air service agreement between Bangladesh and the Philippines was long ago, he would give instructions to the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) to update it quickly and sign a new one, and also to check the feasibility of establishing Dhaka-Manila direct air service for passengers and cargo. 

Earlier Tuesday night Vietnamese Ambassador to Bangladesh Nguyen Manh Cuong paid a courtesy meeting with the minister. At that time, they exchanged views on the tourism-related issues of the two countries.
