China Vows Continued Support for Bangladesh’s Development

China has reaffirmed its commitment to supporting Bangladesh’s development across various sectors, according to Liu Jianchao, Minister of the International Relations of the Communist Party of China’s (CPC) Central Committee. Jianchao made these remarks during a meeting with President Mohammed Shahabuddin at the Bangabhaban in Dhaka on Tuesday.

“China always attaches great importance to bolstering development ties with Bangladesh and will always be beside Bangladesh’s development,” said Liu Jianchao. He praised Bangladesh’s strides in infrastructure, information technology, communication, energy, and tourism.

Following the meeting, President’s Press Secretary Md Joynal Abedin briefed reporters on its outcomes.

President Shahabuddin warmly welcomed the Chinese minister, highlighting China as one of Bangladesh’s most crucial development partners. He credited Chinese cooperation for the successful implementation of several mega projects, including the Padma Bridge Rail Link, Karnaphuli Tunnel, and the elevated expressway, which have significantly accelerated Bangladesh’s economic growth.

The president expressed optimism that the long-standing relationship between Bangladesh and China would continue to strengthen. He also sought China’s support for Bangladesh to become a partner member of BRICS, an intergovernmental organization of emerging economies that includes Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Iran, Egypt, Ethiopia, and the United Arab Emirates.

President Shahabuddin also mentioned Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s upcoming visit to China, hoping it would further enhance bilateral relations. He emphasized the importance of increasing people-to-people contacts to expand cooperation in trade and investment.

Additionally, the president addressed the ongoing Rohingya crisis, seeking China’s full cooperation in resolving this significant issue. He also noted the recent visit of an Awami League delegation to China, which he believes will foster better understanding and cooperation between the CPC and the Awami League.

Secretaries from the president’s office were also present at the meeting.
