Guyana keen to work closely with BD09 April 2015 bdnews24.com
South America's one of the poorest economies, Guyana is keen to work closely with Bangladesh.
It's newly appointed non-resident High Commissioner to Bangladesh Jairam Ronald Gajraj called on Foreign Minister Abul Hassan Mahmood Ali on Wednesday.
He told the foreign minister that a joint commission could be formed to identify the areas where the two countries could work together.
Gajraj, based in New Delhi, presented his credentials for Bangladesh to President Md Abdul Hamid on Tuesday.
The only English-speaking country in South America, Guyana's economy depends mostly on commodity exports.
Rich in ecology, the foreign minister said Bangladesh could help Guyana to tap its resources.
He particularly mentioned skilled manpower exports like doctors, nurses, engineers and agriculturalists from Bangladesh.
Ali said regular foreign office consultation could be a way to give a "structural shape" to the bilateral relations, a proposal the envoy accepted.
The foreign minister assured him of all kinds of support during his tenure.
