Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday called on Brazil to import readymade garments directly from Bangladesh.

"RMG goods from Bangladesh are exported to Brazil on a limited scale through third parties. It will be more affordable for Brazil if the country directly imports RMG items from Bangladesh," the premier said when a delegation of Brazil led by its foreign minister, Mauro Vieira, paid a courtesy call on her at her office.

PM's Speech Writer M Nazrul Islam briefed newsmen after the meeting.

Stressing the need to ensure trade balance between Bangladesh and Brazil, Sheikh Hasina said the trade balance between the two countries has highly tilted towards Brazil.

Brazil can import more products, including jute, jute goods and leather items, from Bangladesh to ensure the trade balance between the two countries, she continued.

The prime minister said Bangladesh mainly imports sugar, soybean oil and cotton from Brazil.

"There are huge opportunities to increase bilateral trade between Bangladesh and Brazil," she said.

Sheikh Hasina has also stressed the need to enhance bilateral relations between Bangladesh and Brazil.
