The government may adopt the Indian experience in fuel import and distribution by the private sector as the government is drafting a policy for open market sales of petroleum fuels.
Bangladesh has sought Indian cooperation and experience in open market fuel sales on the local market by private companies.
The Indian counterparts have experience of fuel imports and marketing in the private sector, Nasrul Hamid said.
In addition to LNG and oil import prices, the meeting also discussed drilling of deep sea blocks and the commissioning of the Numaligar pipeline, he noted.
Following the meeting, Nasrul Hamid met with Raj Kumar Singh, the Indian power minister.
Moreover, they discussed formal commissioning of the 1320MW Rampal power plant, as well as power imports from Adani.
India and Bangladesh both stressed the need for renewed fuel imports in the coming days.
