Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen said Dhaka will seek duty free access of Bangladeshi readymade garments (RMG) products to the US market for the next three years.
Through this move, Bangladesh will ensure recovery of the RMG sector from the financial fallout caused by the pandemic, added Momen. The minister further said he will also raise the Rohingya issue seeking stronger US support in commencing repatriation of the displaced Myanmar people from Bangladesh.
Dhaka will also urge the US to invest in infrastructure development in Bangladesh under its Indo-Pacific Strategy (IPS).
Momen will also raise the visa issue of potential Bangladeshi students as the US embassy in Dhaka yet to start issuing new student visas for Bangladeshi nationals due to COVID pandemic.
