The bilateral deficit, which has tripled in the last decade, fell to € 2.23 billion last year, according to Bangla Media reports.
“To reduce the huge trade deficit we are facing, France is to serve Bangladesh and its people, especially in areas where our excellence is globally proven. We would like to provide you with the know-how and experience that is highly valued. Therefore, we are in areas such as power generation (including renewable energy), rail transport, water treatment, and all environmental issues.
