The BGMEA president said this while meeting with Ambassador of Russia to Bangladesh Alexander Vikentyevich Mantytskiy at BGMEA PR office in the capital on Thursday. BGMEA Vice President Miran Ali and First Secretary at the Russian Embassy Anton Vereshchagin were also present on the occasion, said a press release.

They had discussions on various trade related issues especially how bilateral trade between Bangladesh and Russia could be enhanced further.
