The government of Poland is considering reopening its mission in Dhaka for further strengthening trade and commerce relations.
Newly appointed Polish Ambassador Prof Piotr Klodkowski said this while presenting his credentials to President Zillur Rahman at Bangabhaban.
Welcoming the Delhi-based envoy at Bangabhaban, the president said Bangladesh always considers Poland as a good friend.
He recalled that Poland is the 6th country to accord recognition to Bangladesh on 12 January 1972.
President Zillur said there are still many avenues to boost trade and commerce relations between the two countries, which have yet to be explored.
He urged the Polish businessmen to import Bangladeshi products of world standard such as readymade garments, pharmaceuticals, jute and jute goods, ceramics and leather and leather products considering their reasonable prices.
The polish envoy highly lauded the development progress of Bangladesh. "Bangladesh is a big story of success in many ways and Poland would like to participate in its journey of success," he said.
He also praised Bangladesh's role for being the number one troops sending country to the UN peacekeeping mission.
Klodkowski assured the president that he would try to increase trade and commerce relations between the two countries and also sought president's all possible help and cooperation in discharging his duties.
Secretaries concerned to the president's office and high officials of the foreign office were present on the occasion.
Earlier, on his arrival at the Bangabhaban, the ambassador was given a guard of honour by a contingent of President's Guard Regiment. -BSS
