Dhaka, Thimphu agree to negotiate FTA

 
Apart from strong collaboration in the power sector, especially hydroelectric power, Bangladesh and Bhutan have agreed to boost trade and negotiate a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the two countries.
 Foreign Secretary M Shahidul Haque said this at a press conference arranged for the members of the Diplomatic Correspondents Association, Bangladesh (DCAB) at the Foreign Ministry Monday.
“Bhutanese side has proposed to negotiate an FTA with Bangladesh…our Prime Minister has agreed on the proposal,” he said.
Sharing the outcome of Bhutanese Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay’s three-day visit, Shahidul Haque said power sector collaboration, especially hydroelectric power, came up very strongly at the discussion table.
