Describing Saudi Arabia as a friendly country of Bangladesh, Golam Dastagir hoped that the kingdom would come up with investments on a larger scale in the textiles and jute sectors. 

He said the demand for jute goods has increased significantly in Saudi Arabia with the rise of environmental awareness there.  

Multipurpose jute products are now being exported to different countries in the world, including Saudi Arabia. 

“Bangladesh is willing to export jute products to Saudi Arabia on a larger scale in future,” said the minister.

In response, the Saudi envoy said his country sincerely believes that Bangladesh is a friendly country of Saudi Arabia.  “That is why Saudi Arabia is interested in expanding and developing trade and commerce in Bangladesh’s textiles and jute sectors.”

Besides, the issues of mutual interest and the economic progress of Bangladesh were also discussed in the meeting.

Among others, Textiles and Jute Secretary Abdul Mannan was also present at the meeting.
