Nepal, Bangladesh to consolidate relations through information
Jan 18, 2019-
Nepal and Bangladesh have been making efforts to further bilateral cooperation through communication and information technology.Both the countries have been putting in efforts to consolidate their ties at the government-to-government level and people-to-people level through cooperation and collaboration between their respective state-owned news agencies.
In a meeting between Rastriya Samachar Samiti (RSS) Chairperson Harihar Adhikari ‘Shyamal’, RSS General-Manager Opendra Sharma and high-level
management and Bangladeshi Ambassador to Nepal Mashfee Binte Shams at the central office of RSS today, ways and means to take the five-decade-old Nepal-Bangladesh ties to new heights were discussed.
Bangladeshi Ambassador Shams said that the people-to-people contact between Bangladesh and Nepal could be bolstered through regular exchange of news and information between the Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha (BSS) and RSS.
She also shared that BSS could be an information bridge to Nepal and vice versa.
“Around 30,000 Bangladeshi tourists have been visiting Nepal yearly,” said the Bangladeshi envoy. “The Motor Vehicles Agreement should be expanded to
other SAARC member countries, besides Nepal and Bangladesh, as the deal could aid in the promotion of trade and tourism between Bangladesh and Nepal.”
On the occasion, RSS Chairperson Shyamal said the partnership between
the two official news agencies would help bring the people in both the countries closer.
Stressing on the need to define the partnership between RSS and BSS, Shyamal expressed his confidence that an exchange of information and news between two countries could help satiate the hunger for knowledge and information of the people in these countries.
