IORA should make all-out efforts for developing blue economies: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday stressed the need for making best efforts to develop blue economies by the Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) member states.

"IORA member countries should put all-out efforts to develop the blue economies," she said.

The prime minister said this while a delegation of 12 IORA member countries had a meeting with her at the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) in the capital.

PM's Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed the newsmen after the meeting.

Bangladesh, as the next chair of the IORA, is hosting the 21st IORA Council of Ministers' (COM) meeting in Dhaka today.
