Experts have emphasized the importance of creating win-win situations

In an increasingly globalized world, one of the ways in which the current government has boosted Bangladesh’s position has been through nurturing relationships with regional powers.

In this regard, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s official visit to China, in which nine deals were signed in a variety of sectors, is a definite step in the right direction.

This is indeed wonderful news, as the deals signed will benefit Bangladesh in a variety of ways, from generating investment and economic cooperation to creating better cultural and tourism exchanges between the nations. 

This is especially crucial as for a rapidly developing nation like Bangladesh, power generation will become increasingly important, with particular reference to its expanding population and economy.

Additionally, our path to progress has, to a great degree, been supported by investment from abroad, which has also been given its due in this trip. 

However, one of the most encouraging outcomes of the visits has been China’s willingness to provide support to the Rohingya. 

We have, for the longest time, spoken of the need for international support in providing for the Rohingya population, and China’s willingness to provide aid is greatly appreciated. 

Experts have, time and again, emphasized the importance of creating win-win situations for developing nations such as Bangladesh, which has come a long way, but would greatly benefit from such bilateral relations which encourage the exchange of ideas and services and boost connectivity. 

This recent series of deals is a perfect example of how maintaining friendships with other nations can help us take the next big step on our development journey.
