Denmark could invest in the poultry and dairy sectors to help Bangladesh boost protein production, reports UNB.

The country expressed the interest when a five-member delegation, led by acting Danish ambassador Refika Hayta, met with Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives Minister Khandker Mosharraf Hossain at the secretariat yesterday.

The minister said he apprised the delegation of the government project “Ektee Bari Ektee Khamar.”

“The government is providing incentives for poultry farming to meet people's demand for protein,” he said. “Bangladesh will benefit from the two countries working together in this sector.”

Mosharraf said the present government has taken various initiatives to provide incentives to expand the dairy farming sector.

“Cooperative farmers are making a significant contribution to milk production, processing and marketing through Milk Vita,” he said.

Other attendees on Thursday included LGRD and Cooperatives Secretary SM Golam Kibria and members of the delegation.
