Polish technology offered for extraction of Bangladesh mineral resources

Poland has offered Bangladesh their state-of-the-art technology for extraction of mineral resources, including coal, in Bangladesh.

State Minister for Foreign Affairs M Shahriar Alam held bilateral talks with Deputy Minister for Development Cooperation, Africa and Middle-East, Asia and Pacific, Economic Diplomacy and Human Rights at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Joanna Wronecka in Warsaw on Thursday and discussed cooperation between the two countries.

Joanna Wronecka said balance of trade between the two countries is heavily in favour of Bangladesh and they would like to reduce that gap by offering to transfer state-of-the-art Polish technology for extraction of mineral resources, including coal, in Bangladesh, said a foreign ministry press release on Friday.

Shahriar termed Bangladesh an increasingly geostrategic regional economic and logistics hub where many European countries are showing keen interest to invest and do business.

Pointing out the demographic dividend, competitive and skilled labour force and congenial business environment, he said Bangladesh could be a lucrative destination for the Polish businesses in many priority areas like shipbuilding, pharmaceuticals, leather,footwear and agro-processing.

Recalling the significant contributions and support of Poland in the country’s Liberation War in 1971, the State Minister expressed gratitude and emphasized on enhanced bilateral cooperation between the two time-tested friendly countries.

He further emphasized on opening of resident Polish Mission in Dhaka soon to tap the opportunities of deepening and widening of bilateral relations on economic, trade and investment, education, agriculture, knowledge and innovation - in the coming days.

When the State Minister urged for easing of visas for Bangladeshi students who are interested to avail study opportunities in the world-class Polish universities the Polish Deputy Minister assured that they will take necessary steps/initiative in this regard.

The State Minister also sought support of his Polish counterpart for scholarships for Bangladeshi students.

The Polish Deputy Minister emphasized on regular dialogue at the senior official / political level to further strengthen bilateral ties. She also sought Bangladesh’s support for Polish candidatures in different international bodies.

Earlier, the State Minister met Polish Deputy Minister (Undersecretary of State) for Economic Development Tadeusez Koscinski at the Ministry of Economic Development of Poland where the two Ministers agreed to exchange business delegation on regular basis and exchanged views on opportunities for deeper economic cooperation.
