  6. Bangladesh seeks to increase exports to Iran.Trade between Iran and Bangladesh is only the concern of these two countries. No other country should have any say in it. All countries should ignore the US and EU sanctions against Iran. Who gave them the authority to dictate to others who they can or can’t do business with?

  7. is a Tender Notification Service Portal that keeps you abreast with latest information on tenders being floated by government and private organizations all over Bangladesh.
