The Korean Ambassador greeted Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on the formation of the government for the fourth consecutive term. 

"We are encouraging Korean companies to invest in various projects of Bangladesh," he said, adding that therefore, efforts are being made to increase Korean investment in other sectors besides the jute and leather sectors. 
The Ambassador sought the minister's cooperation to reduce their tariff and to extend validity of the visas to those who are working in Bangladesh. 

The Minister of Textiles and Jute assured the ambassador that he will try to solve these problems by discussing with the concerned ministries and departments.
