The ambassadors of three Nordic countries -- Denmark, Norway and Sweden -- on Saturday promised to have a stronger partnership with Bangladesh with a focus on green growth and increased investment flow to help grow Bangladesh in a faster way.

Danish Ambassador to Bangladesh Winnie Estrup Petersen, Norwegian Ambassador to Bangladesh Sidsel Bleken and Swedish Ambassador to Bangladesh Charlotta Schlyter shared their priority areas from renewable energy to blue economy and climate change and highlighted easing investment in Bangladesh removing barriers.

The Nordic ambassadors were addressing a symposium titled 'Bangladesh and Nordic Countries: Prognosis for Partnership’ at Six Seasons Hotel in the city.

The ambassadors stationed in Dhaka laid emphasis on resolving Rohingya crisis noting that the provisional measures by the top UN court - International Court of Justice (ICJ) - are an important step on accountability front.

They observed that the responsibility of safe return of Rohingyas goes to Myanmar.
