Spain has offered to help develop tourism and fish farming in Bangladesh with the help of its vast experience in the two sectors. The message was recently conveyed to Bangladesh prime minister Begum Khaleda Zia by Spanish prime minister's special envoy Santiago Cabanas Ansorena and the Spanish ambassador to Bangladesh Don Rafael Conde de Saro.
The Spanish ambassador called for increasing cooperation between the two countries under the build-operate-transfer system. He praised the development of infrastructure in Bangladesh. Begum Zia urged Spain to invest more in Bangladesh and increase imports from the country. She also invited Spanish business delegations to the country.
