The centre of trade
Regardless of many of our infrastructural inadequacies, Bangladesh has done a terrific job in retaining its economic momentum. Our nation remains an excellent destination for foreign investment. To that end, the expansion of a trade centre in Assam is welcome news. The expansion of the Sutarkandi trade centre is expected to boost Indo-Bangla trade, but it also stands to positively affect our business ties with other South Asian countries to a great extent. We need more initiatives such as this. Given the close proximity, there is ample scope to further trade between Bangladesh and our immediate neighbours, and building more trade centres and expanding existing ones is the right way to go about achieving it.
