Bangladesh Seeks Sri Lankan Investment in Tourism

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday called for Sri Lankan investment in Bangladesh’s tourism sector, highlighting the mutual benefits for both nations. The request was made during a courtesy meeting with Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe in New Delhi, where both leaders attended the swearing-in ceremony of India’s newly elected Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday.

Foreign Minister Hasan Mahmud briefed reporters after the meeting, noting the potential for Sri Lankan investment in Bangladesh’s tourism sector. “A discussion was held on how Sri Lankan investment can come to Bangladesh in its tourism sector as Sri Lanka is much ahead in the tourism sector,” he said.

In addition to tourism, the two leaders discussed mutual cooperation in agriculture and maritime sectors. “The meeting was just a courtesy call. But the entire gamut of bilateral relations was discussed elaborately,” Mahmud added.

President Wickremesinghe expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Hasina for Bangladesh’s financial assistance during Sri Lanka’s critical time. In response, Hasina extended an invitation to Wickremesinghe to visit Bangladesh. Although the Sri Lankan president expressed his desire to visit, he mentioned that his country is heading towards an election.

Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen and PM’s Press Secretary M Nayeemul Islam Khan were also present during the briefing.
