Bhutanese Minister of Foreign Affairs and external Trade of Bhutan Dr. Tandi Dorji has highly praised the Fair group in Bangladesh for its outstanding contribution and enhancing the quality of people’s lifestyle in Bangladesh by providing innovative technology and quality products.
He made the praiseworthy words during his visit to Fair Group office on Friday morning.
On the second day of his five-day official visit to Bangladesh, the Foreign Minister of Bhutan paid a courtesy meeting with Fair Group Chairman Ruhul Alam Al Mahbub at his Banani office.
Dorji recalled his seven years MBBS study life at the Mymensingh Medical College and said Bangladesh is his second home.
Bhutanese Ambassador to Bangladesh Rinchen Kuentsyl and senior officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Bhutan and Director of the Fair Group Mutassim Daiaan were present.
Dorji said that, Bhutan is building a special economic zone on 2500 acres of land in its southern part, 70 km away from Bangladesh. Special legislation and all kinds of infrastructural facilities have been ensured to protect the interests of investors. He urged the Fair Group to invest in this special economic zone.
Responding positively to this request, Fair Group Chairman Ruhul Alam Al Mahbub said, "We will check the possibility of investment there. I will definitely invest in Bhutan if it is suitable from all sides.”
Accepting the invitation of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and External Trade to visit Bhutan, the Fair Group Chairman said, Bhutan is a country of peace and is truly an environment-friendly country.
“People of Bangladesh will always remember the contribution of the great people and government of Bhutan as Bhutan was the first to recognise Bangladesh as an independent state during the Liberation War in 1971. We always admire Bhutan and it’s people and thus we will be by the side of friendly Bhutan,” he added.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs and External Trade expressed his gratitude to the Fair Group for providing a one-month long residential training in smart phone, consumer electronics and automobile servicing to a group of Bhutanese youth last year.
Fair Group Chairman also agreed to the request to provide this training facility to more youths of Bhutan this year.
