Bangladeshi Ambassador to Iran Khandakar Abdul Sattar announced on Saturday that members of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) will pay a visit to Iran in near future to investigate broadening economic ties.
“Dhaka is interested in the expansion of all-out ties with Tehran and expects bilateral relations to increase further in future,” Abdul Sattar said after a meeting in Qazvin province, Northwest of Tehran.
Last March, Iran’s Vice-President Mohammad Shariatmadari and Bangladeshi Minister of Religious Affairs Motia Rahman, in a meeting in Tehran, voiced their countries’ enthusiasm for consolidating all-out relations.
Shariatmadari said in the meeting that current level of Iran-Bangladesh trade transactions is not satisfying, and stressed that long strides should be taken for expansion of mutual economic cooperation.
Rahman, for his part, said that Bangladesh attaches great importance to expansion of relations with Islamic countries, Iran in particular.
Iran has announced readiness on many occasions for reinvigoration of all-out ties with friendly country, specially the Islamic ones.
Bangladesh with an approximate population of 160 million, with at least 90 percent Muslims, can be a very good market for Iran’s high-quality products.
