Turkey is working on increasing the trade volume with Bangladesh to the tune of $3 billion in the next few years, now that it has crossed the $1 billion-mark.

Turkish Ambassador in Dhaka Mustafa Osman Turan said this while speaking with diplomatic correspondents at the new Turkish embassy in the capital on Wednesday.

Trade potential between the two countries needs to be tapped to increase the trade volume to $3 billion, said the Turkish envoy.

The Turkish diplomat said Ankara’s “deep rooted” ties with Dhaka remained cemented while some political developments over the past few years strengthened it further; opening scope for enhanced economic cooperation as well.

Turkey and Bangladesh enjoy a long-standing deep-rooted relationship, and nothing can change this, he also said.

Laying emphasis on the people-to people contact, the envoy said high-level political visits of the heads of two governments can help take the relations between Dhaka and Ankara to newer heights.

He said the defense cooperation between Dhaka and Ankara had been increasing for the last couple of years in view of Turkey’s near self-sufficiency in defense manufacturing.

Turan said Turkey would like to be a “solution maker” for the Bangladeshi armed forces.

The ambassador added that his country expressed its interest to invest in Bangladesh’s shipbuilding industry as well as enhance cooperation in the pharmaceuticals and ICT sectors.

Both the countries in recent periods purchased lands in the two capitals for setting up their embassies.
