Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) on Wednesday laid emphasis on closer business ties between Bangladesh and Brazil through reducing communication gap for mutual benefit.

A new era of cooperation could explore a better business-to-business understanding if Bangladesh and the South American nation could exploit their potentials, said Sheikh Fazle Fahim, President of the umbrella platform of the trade bodies in Bangladesh.

Fahim passed the remarks while Joao Tabajara de Oliveira, Brazilian ambassador in Dhaka, met him at Federation Bahaban in Dhaka, said a press release.

He said Bangladeshi businesses are eager to explore opportunities in Brazil, which is a member of the five-nation forum of emerging markets-BRICS.

BRICS comprises of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, representing 42 percent of the world’s population, 23 percent of the global GDP and 30 percent of the territory.
