Australia-Bangladesh trade grows19 July 2014 bdnews24.com
Australia Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce and Industry has launched a membership drive, inspired by the growing two-way trade within a decade of its formation.
Together with the Australian High Commission in Dhaka, it has invited applications for membership from companies involved in trade and investment between Australia and Bangladesh.
The High Commission in a media release said that when the bilateral chamber was formed a decade ago, the two-way trade was around AUD 160 million and heavily in favour of Australia.
But now the High Commission said the two-way trade has crossed AUD 1 billion mark with 450 million accruing from Bangladesh's exports.
