Bangladesh has evinced keen interest in importing power from Arunachal Pradesh, once the ongoing hydro electric projects in the state are commissioned.
Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina conveyed this desire to Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki when he along with 16 other delegates from North East, including Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma, met her in Dhaka.
It said that a Central Power Grid is proposed to be established to transmit electricity from Arunachal to Bangladesh. Officials from Bangladesh will be visiting the state shortly for the purpose.
During their interaction, Ms Hasina voiced her strong resolve to work with India for mutual development of the two countries.
The Bangladesh Prime Minister expressed eagerness to invest in the progressive state after Tuki made a call for investment from her country in tapping Arunachal's vast natural resources in hydropower, agriculture, horticulture, minerals and forestry sectors.
She also strongly endorsed Tuki's view of Arunachal as a potential business hub for all the South East Asian countries.
