The request came when US
Ambassador in Dhaka James F Moriarty called on the Prime Minister at the Prime
Minister's Office (PMO) in the morning.
Hasina assured the US Ambassador of investment-friendly environment in the country and Moriarty also expressed interest for more investment from his country.
She informed the US Ambassador about her government's strong stand on alleviating poverty, the "main enemy" of the South Asian region, and against terrorism.
The Prime Minister thanked Ambassador Moriarty as the outgoing US President George W Bush greeted her for taking the charge through a free, fair and neutral election.
She also hailed the United States for sending election monitoring team in holding the December 29 polls in peaceful and acceptable manner and for its interest in restoring democracy in Bangladesh.
Hasina and Moriarty discussed in details the issues of mutual interests and hoped that the existing friendly relations between the two countries will be strengthened further in the coming days.
Later, outgoing Australian High Commissioner Douglas Foskett paid a farewell call on the Prime Minister at the PMO.
