Tafail said, “Saudi Arabia can avail itself of the tax- and quota-free benefit by investing in Bangladesh. We have one hundred economic zones where Saudi Arabia can invest. We shall provide them assistance and all kinds of support.”
Meanwhile, the Finance Minister AMA Muhith said, “We (Saudi-Bangladesh) have completed enough agreements, now we are expecting expansion of trade between the two friendly countries.
“We are hoping that the trade agreements between the countries should be structural which can lead to more expansion and bring diversification in future”, he continued.
