Nepalese Ambassador to Bangladesh Banshidhar Mishra has stressed the need for taking increased efforts to boost trade with Bangladesh.
He made the call during his visit to Sonamasjid land port of Shibganj upazila in Chapainawabganj today, according to The Daily Star’s Chapainawabganj correspondent.
Sonamasjid is the second largest port in Bangladesh through which many foreign students come to the south Asian country to study in medical colleges, he said.
Sonamasjid land port has made it easy for Nepal’s eastern and southern parts to be connected with Bangladesh for export-import business, Mishra said.
“Sonamasjid has a lot of trade potential. We are connected with many other land ports and connection with Sonamasjid will be good for all also.”
Later, he along with other officials of the Nepalese embassy also visited Mohdipur land port of Maldah in India’s West Bengal, which is situated just opposite to Sonamasjid land port.
