India To Start Economic Partnership Talks With Bangladesh
India will start talks on a comprehensive economic partnership agreement (CEPA) with Bangladesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday.
"We also decided to increase cooperation in sectors such as IT, space and nuclear energy," PM Modi said after holding talks with his Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina, who is on a four-day visit to India.
Both countries have been involved in a joint study on the CEPA, which has been in discussions between the two neighbours for many years.
Bangladesh is India's largest development partner and the largest regional trade partner, PM Modi said.
