Dhaka, BdChronicle:

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday sought Spanish investment in Bangladesh’s economic zones to increase economic cooperation between the two countries.

She made the call when Spanish Ambassador in Dhaka Alvaro de Salas Gimenez de Azcarate met her at her office.

PM’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters after the meeting.

Ihsanul said the Prime Minister told the Spanish envoy that Bangladesh is establishing 100 economic zones across the country for a balanced economic development.

She put importance on strengthening the economic cooperation between Bangladesh and Spain.

Expressing satisfaction over the excellent relations between the two countries, Sheikh Hasina said Spain was very much supportive to Bangladesh when Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was rebuilding it after its independence.

Alvaro de Salas Gimenez informed the Prime Minister that Spain has translated Bangabandhu’s ‘Unfinished Memoirs’ into Spanish language and the first edition of the book will be published soon.

He also said the book will be sent to libraries across the world where Spanish-speaking people live. “It’s the history of the family (of Bangabandhu) and the history of Bangladesh. We’re proud that we’ve translated the book,” he said.
