The min­is­ter led a 4-mem­ber del­e­ga­tion and met with Ly­onch­hen at the Gya­ly­ong Tshogkhang last Fri­day. Ly­onch­hen con­veyed the warm greet­ings of His Majesty the King and thanked the del­e­ga­tion for their visit. Ly­onch­hen ex­pressed the ap­pre­ci­a­tion of RGoB and peo­ple of Bhutan to Gov­ern­ment of Bangladesh for honor­ing the “Bangladesh Lib­er­a­tion War Honor” award to Late His Majesty the Third Druk Gyalpo King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck on March 27, 2012. The two lead­ers talked about col­lab­o­rat­ing on ar­eas such as trade and com­merce, power, min­er­als and agri­cul­ture. Ly­onch­hen sug­gested that the two gov­ern­ments re­view the ex­ist­ing trade agree­ment and ex­pand it to make it more con­struc­tive. Ly­onch­hen fur­ther pro­posed ex­port of boul­ders from Bhutan for use in the con­struc­tion sec­tor in Bangladesh.
