The Bangladesh High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr Masudur Rahman, has expressed the desire of his country to deepen cooperation with Nigeria in the areas of agriculture, textile and Information and Communications Technology (ICT).
Rahman said this recently in Abuja at a reception to mark the 52nd independence and National Day celebration of Bangladesh.
He said considering the peculiarity between both countries in terms of demography and diplomatic pursuits, Nigeria and Bangladesh needed to further strengthen cooperation from all fronts.
“Bangladesh and Nigeria, having tremendous synergies in demography, colonial legacy, democratic and secular traditions and diplomatic pursuits under the ambit of the UN and its specialised bodies, the OIC, the D-8 and the Commonwealth, are poised to deepen further our existing bilateral cooperation.
“Both countries are eyeing to expand cooperation in agriculture, education, communications and digital economy, export-led sectors like garments/textiles, SMEs, including defence training and exchanges,” he said.
Rahman also stressed the need to explore other areas of untapped potential and mutual interest.
The envoy paid homage to the visionary leadership of the ‘father of the nation,’ Sheikh Mujibur Rahman for his struggle for independence and bequeathing an independent and prosperous nation to its people.
