1,000 acres of land kept in economic zones for Indian investors

PM tells Indian envoy

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said 1,000 acres of land have been allocated in economic zones for Indian investors and if they are interested, they can set up LNG plants there.

She made the remark when Harsh Vardhan Shringla, Indian high commissioner to Bangladesh, called on her at her office. 

Briefing reporters following the meeting, PM's Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim said the primary topic of their discussion was bilateral cooperation, especially the projects being implemented in Bangladesh with Indian cooperation.

The prime minister told the high commissioner that Bangladesh and India witnessed a remarkable progress in different areas of cooperation over the last nine years, particularly in the field of power and energy.

She hoped that India will continue to extend its cooperation for ensuring energy security in Bangladesh.

The Indian envoy informed the Bangladesh premier of the present state of power projects in Bangladesh and the development of discussions on new power projects for Bangladesh, West Bengal and eastern part of India.

Shringla hoped that Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh's 3-day visit to Bangladesh, commencing from today, will strengthen cooperation between the two countries.

Hasina recalled her visit to Saantiniketan in May, and her meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

PM's Principal Secretary Nojibur Rahman was present at the meeting.
