PM to visit China soon

Deals likely on road, rail links, ports

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will visit China soon to sign deals on road and rail links between Kunming and Chittagong, and the use of two seaports.
"The agreement on the use of Chittagong and Mongla ports will be signed with China like India, Nepal and Bhutan," Awami League General Secretary Syed Ashraful Islam told journalists yesterday at the party chief's political office in Dhanmondi.
Ashraf, also LGRD and Cooperatives minister, said the signing of agreement with China on the use of the ports, would make it clear that Bangladesh doesn't want to remain isolated from the rest of the world.
He said Bangladesh has already sent proposals to China and Foreign Minister Dipu Moni is working to finalise them.
