According to the Nepalese envoy, “Nepal would be able to deliver more electricity to Bangladesh if that project is completed,” according to Karim.

As Nepal is closer to Banglabandha port than Burimari port, Ghanshyam Bhandari stated his nation’s significant interest in using it for export.

He stated that Bangladesh is very important to Nepal and that his country wishes to strengthen its economic ties with Bangladesh.

The Nepalese envoy expressed appreciation for Bangladesh’s support in the education sector and noted that many Nepalese students have been studying here for higher education.

The newly appointed ambassador was thanked by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who also promised him full cooperation during his visit to Bangladesh.
