Bangladeshi High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Tareq Md Ariful Islam said that Bangladesh closely follows the Colombo Port City Project developments.
“Like others in the region, our business community must also be following the developments with interest. It must be featured in their future business expansion plans. Hopefully, there would be outreach from the side of the CPC. If we are officially approached, we will do the needful. At the same time, we will also facilitate the matter for our interested business entities,” he said in an interview with Daily Mirror.
Bangladesh supported Sri Lanka at the UNHRC in the spirit of good neighbourliness and in view of excellent bilateral relations, he further said.
The Sri Lankan Parliament recently approved the Colombo Port City Economic Commission Bill, which allows China to build the port city on land reclaimed from the sea.
