'We've allotted land for the Indian entrepreneurs in Mirsarai Economic Zone'

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has urged Indian businessmen to investment more in Bangladesh for the mutual benefits of the two neighbouring countries.

"We've allotted land for the Indian entrepreneurs in Mirsarai Economic Zone. You can invest there," she told a delegation of the Indian Chamber of Commerce, led by its President Rudra Chatterjee, when they called on her at her office in parliament building on Wednesday.

At the meeting, the prime minister informed the delegation that Bangladesh was providing various facilities for foreign investors, reports UNB.

Saying that both countries were enjoying the best-ever bilateral relations under the current government, Chatterjee said that Indian investors were keen to set up manufacturing units in Bangladesh.

Bangladesh could import tea from Tripura which would be beneficial for both countries, he said, adding: "I'd been here 10 years ago. I'm noticing huge changes and development in Bangladesh this time.”

The prime minister’s International Affairs Adviser Dr Gowher Rizvi and the secretary of the Prime Minister’s Office, Sajjadul Hassan, were also present at the meeting.
