Bangladesh government has approved renewal of the bilateral trade agreement between Bangladesh and India. Under this agreement, the countries will be able to use their waterways, roadways and railways for transportation of goods between two places in one country through the territory of the other.
The agreement was approved just prior to Indian foreign minister Pranab Mukherjee visit to Bangladesh.
The cabinet also approved signing of a new treaty--Bilateral Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (BIPA)--to boost trade and investment with India.
Amir Khasru has more on the story.
