Dhaka to explore blue economy with Oman

Foreign Minister Dr A K Abdul Momen on Sunday urged the new Omani envoy in Bangladesh to undertake new and emerging areas of cooperation like environment and climate change, agriculture and food security, blue economy and enhanced trade between Bangladesh and Oman.

Dr Momen made the urge while newly appointed Oman's Charge d' Affaires (CDA) to Bangladesh Abdul Ghaffar Bin Abdul Karim Al- Bulushi, who is with the rank of Minister Plenipotentiary, submitted his letter of credence to him at foreign ministry in Dhaka, a press release said.

The foreign minister expressed his gratitude to the Sultanate of Oman for hosting over half a million of Bangladeshis expatriate workers who have been diligently contributing to both the countries' economic development.

Momen commended the judicious role and leadership of late Sultan Qaboos to the development of the modern Oman.

Al-Bulushi apprised the minister about the great contribution by Bangladeshi work force in Oman.

He further expressed his commitment that he would dedicate his office to the exploration and expansion of the cooperative areas that the Bangladesh foreign Minister suggested.

The CDA recalled with appreciation the role of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman- the Father of the Nation in giving an identity to people of Bangladesh.

He also appreciated the role of the present government under the leadership by Hon'ble prime minister in uplifting the living standard of the people and the country's economic status.
