UNB, Dhaka :

Thrashing the apprehension that Bangladesh will finally be a 'loser' as a developing country, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said the country would be able to avail of much more alternative facilities under WTO rules.
“Many people, perhaps, have a doubt that we’ll be deprived of many facilities as a developing country. But we'll be able to avail of much more facilities than what we would be deprived of. It would be a big deal (scope) for us,” she said.
The Prime Minister made the remarks while inaugurating the newly-constructed Bangabandhu Bangladesh-China Friendship Exhibition Centre at Purbachal.
She opened the eye-catching exhibition centre virtually from her official residence Ganobhaban here.
The centre equipped with modern facilities is the permanent venue for different product-based fairs round the year. It was built by the Export Promotion Bureau (EPB) under a project jointly financed by Bangladesh and China.
Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh is now a developing country. We’ll avail of the alternative facilities which are available for a developing country under the rules and guidelines of the WTO. We'll be able to do that. So, I think there would be no big problem here.”
“We’ll get much more scope to expand our export and investment in the country,” she said.
