Dhaka, July 11 (BDNEWS) – Amadau Mody Diall, ambassador of Mali concurrently accredited to Bangladesh, Monday called on Kamaluddin Ahmed, acting president of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI).
They discussed on enhancement of bilateral trade relation and economic cooperation between the two countries.
The FBCCI leader said despite a good relation, trade between the two countries is insignificant and need to be increased to a substantial level.
Mody Diall observed that exchange of business delegations between the two countries will play an important role in increasing the trade and investment.
The ambassador showed keen interest to import Bangladeshi products specially fertiliser. As Mali produces huge quantity of cotton, Bangladesh may import cotton from Mali, he mentioned.
He emphasised formation of a joint economic council, which would help explore potential sectors and develop bilateral relations.
The FBCCI leader urged the envoy to import garments, pharmaceuticals, jute and tea from Bangladesh. As the Ambassador sought a price list of Bangladeshi exportable goods, he assured to send it shortly.
