The new Bangladeshi ambassador to Japan, who arrived to take up his post recently, said Wednesday that he hopes to play a role in helping to bring representatives of the two countries’ private sectors closer together to enable them to cooperate in a variety of fields.

Jamil Majid, who assumed his new Tokyo post in June, said that promoting such private-sector interaction is very important — as important as government-to-government relations — adding that Japan is the “biggest development partner” for his country in terms of grants and loans in the form of official development assistance, as well as private sector investment.
