Thailand also works with the Bangladesh government trying to fight COVID-19, said the BTCCI.

The outgoing ambassador mentioned that there is a breakthrough in the relationship between Bangladesh and Thailand which helps directly and indirectly relationship in People to People (P2P) by improving visa processing that takes only three days as two outsourcing companies-VFS and Simon Company scrutinise documents properly to get visa application with proper documentation.
