Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina recently urged Swedish investors to invest in Bangladesh’s special economic zones (SEZs), saying several opportunities have been created there for conducting business. She thanked Sweden for not cancelling any order during the COVID-19-induced crisis when Swedish ambassador Alexandra Berg Von Linde paid her a courtesy call.

The newly-appointed ambassador urged Bangladesh to use the green and environment-friendly technologies Sweden has developed. She also said Sweden wants to work more closely with Bangladesh on gender violence and human rights issues, according to Bangla media reports.
