Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) President Md Jashim Uddin expressed his keenness to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the apex Spanish trade body to boost bilateral trade.
"In order to strengthen trade relations, it is important to develop relations between the businessmen of the two countries. Therefore, the exchange of business information will be easier if the FBCCI has a MoU with the Spanish apex trade body," he said.
In his speech, Francisco de Assis Benitez Salas said although there is a huge potential to increase trade in Bangladesh, only a handful of Spanish companies are doing business in Bangladesh.
"It is possible to increase this amount further. But for that, Bangladesh has to be introduced to the Spanish entrepreneurs," he said.
He said Spain opened a commercial wing in 2018 to strengthen trade ties.
Jashim Uddin said a draft MoU would be sent to the Spanish embassy soon.
He said Bangladesh is an attractive destination for foreign investors not only for exports but also for the huge domestic market.
