EFSAS comments on Bangladesh's PM Sheikh Hasina's visit to India


The seven bilateral agreements that were signed in New Delhi and the new project inaugurations and announcements that were made during Hasina’s visit have set the ball rolling for the next few years of cooperation on many fronts, including economics, connectivity and defense. Bilateral trade has doubled to $18 billion in the last five years and several connectivity initiatives have been revived. The agreements and announcements were significant enough in their own right, but the real import of Hasina’s visit was the strong strategic undertone that was apparent throughout, and which continued to linger for days after Hasina returned to Dhaka on 8 September.
