Nepal, Bangladesh share energy cooperation at multilateral level: Minister

Nepal and Bangladesh share bilateral and multilateral level cooperation in the field of energy, according to energy minister.
Addressing Nepal-Bangladesh Business Forum organised by the Bangladeshi Embassy here today, energy minister Barshaman Pun termed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)  signed between Nepal and Bangladesh for energy cooperation on August 10 last year as a very important milestone for both countries. He also argued that Nepal’s willingness to seek further collaboration on the Grid Interconnection among the member countries of BIMSTEC through another MoU has demonstrated Nepal’s commitment in achieving common goal of sub-regional and regional electricity integration. "The energy cooperation and bilateral engagements were being intensified between Nepal and Bangladesh lately."
"We too have forged energy cooperation at sub-regional and regional level understating that sub regional and regional energy connectivity is necessary for balancing energy supply and demand in the region," he said.
Bilateral relations between Nepal and Bangladesh have been further bolstered since the two countries established diplomatic relations in 1972, Pun said, stating that the cooperation between these two countries had spread across political, tourism and education sectors.
Bangladeshi envoy to Nepal Mashfee Binte Shams, on the occasion, spoke on he need for exchange of expertise, education and skills between the two countries as both countries were making a headway for economic development.
