He told the journalists that the EU ambassador said the EU was the biggest export destination for Bangladesh and she advocated for enhancing trade between Bangladesh and EU member countries.

Teerink said the EU was a big development partner for Bangladesh, especially in the education sector.

German Ambassador to Bangladesh Peter Fahrenholtz, who was accompanying the EU Ambassador, highly appreciated the development of Bangladesh under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

"Bangladesh has been moving on to become a mid-income country [despite] facing so many challenges with peace, security and stability," he added.

Hasina mentioned that the development challenges for Bangladesh were huge and widespread.

After assuming power in 1996, the PM said the Awami League government opened everything to the private sector for the speedy development of the country.

The PM invited EU investors to invest in Bangladesh, including joint venture projects.
