Invest more in Special Economic Zones: PM Sheikh Hasina urges Sri Lanka
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today urged Sri Lanka to invest more in Bangladesh, particularly in its special economic zones (SEZs).
"Bangladesh is developing 100 (SEZs) and Sri Lankan entrepreneurs can come up with more investment here availing the existing favourable policies for foreign investors," said Hasina when the newly-appointed Sri Lankan High Commissioner to Bangladesh Sudharshan Deepal Suresh Seneviratne made a courtesy call on the PM at her Gono Bhaban residence.
Prime Minister's Deputy Press Secretary Hasan Jahid Tusher briefed reporters about the meeting.
The Sri Lankan envoy expressed his gratitude to the prime minister for getting the vaccine as the government is also providing inoculation to diplomats and foreigners alongside the country's people.
Congratulating Saima Wazed Hossain for being World Health Organization's (WHO's) champion for autism in the South-East Asia Region, the High Commissioner said her work in the field of autism is praiseworthy.
The high commissioner also praised the government's initiative of transferring money from the social safety net programme to the marginal people through bank accounts and termed it "groundbreaking".
Prime Minister's Office Secretary Md Tofazzel Hossain Miah and Military Secretary to the Prime Minister Major General Naquib Ahmed Chowdhury were present among others in the meeting.
