Sheikh Hasina seeks Sri Lankan investment tourism sector

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday (Jun 10) sought Sri Lankan investment in Bangladesh's tourism sector for mutual benefits of the two friendly countries. She made the appeal at a courtesy meeting with President of Sri Lanka Ranil Wickremesinghe at her Place of Residence in New Delhi in the morning. A discussion on how Sri Lankan investment can come to Bangladesh in its tourism sector was held as Sri Lanka is much ahead in tourism sector, Foreign Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud told a news briefing after the meeting.

The two leaders also had a detailed discussion on mutual cooperation in agriculture and maritime sectors, he said. "The meeting was just a courtesy call-on. But, the entire gamut of bilateral relations was discussed elaborately," he added.
