Bangladesh allows Bhutan to use major seaports

Bhutan will now be able to export and import goods with third countries through major Bangladeshi seaports. This is in line with the Agreement on Movement of Traffic-In-Transit signed with Bangladesh in Thimphu today.

The Minister for Industry, Commerce and Employment Karma Dorji and Bangladesh’s Commerce Minister Tipu Minshu signed the agreement. This means Bhutan will now have additional export-import ports for third-country trade in addition to the existing Kolkatta port in India.

The agreement is also expected to build upon the existing relations and strengthen cooperation in the field of trade and commerce between the two countries.
