Mentioning the Netherlands as a consistent development partner since the independence of Bangladesh, the State Minister expressed his satisfaction at the existing state of bilateral relations between the two countries.
 
The State Minister requested the Ambassador to encourage Dutch investment in Bangladesh in different sectors, including textiles, leather and leather goods.
 
During the meeting, the Dutch Ambassador observed that political stability is required for furthering trade and commerce. 
 
He further informed that the Development Minister of the Netherlands may visit Bangladesh sometime this year.
