I was honoured to exchange views with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and other government leaders on future cooperation between the AIIB and Bangladesh and on the latest developments in the Bank, which we expect to be operational before the end of the year".
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said “I was delighted to receive Mr. Jin in Dhaka on the occasion of the Bangladesh Development Forum 2015.
