The Government of Bangladesh has sought the support of the Netherlands Government for setting up the proposed garments’ village in Munshiganj district bordering the capital Dhaka.
 
The request was made by the State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam, when he met Gerben de Jong, the Ambassador of the Netherlands to Bangladesh, at his office, according to a press release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
 
Minister Alam thanked the Government of the Netherlands for its contribution to the Better Work Programme aimed at improving working conditions in Bangladesh’s readymade garment (RMG) industry.
 
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. 
 
The meeting ended with the hope that Bangladesh and Netherlands would continue to work for securing their mutual interests.
