Bangladesh becoming economic power
Bangladesh is evolving as an impressive economic power and sets a good example as a voice of moderation in the Muslim world, said the visiting Greek minister of Public Order and Citizen Protection, Nikolaos Dendias, yesterday.
Calling on Foreign Minister Dipu Moni at her office, he also acknowledged Bangladesh's credentials and commitment for combating terrorism.
Welcoming him, Dipu Moni expressed happiness for the existing cordial relations with Greece, a country of ancient civilization and cultural heritage having profound influence in intellectual and cultural life of the educated section of Bangladesh.
She recalled with gratitude the valuable moral and diplomatic support Greece extended during the 1971 Liberation War and its prompt recognition of Bangladesh's independence on March 11, 1972.
Observing that potentials for forging mutually gainful bilateral relations remain largely unexplored, Dipu Moni stressed on exchange of high level visits between the two friendly countries. She informed that Bangladesh made impressive progress in some sectors, including ready-made garments, pharmaceuticals, ceramics, jute products, frozen food and leather products.
