Enam Chy leads delegation to China

Enam Chy leads delegation to China


On an invitation from the Chinese Association of Friendship and International Understanding (CAFIU), a good-will mission from Bangladesh, led by Enam Ahmed Chaudhury, leaves for Beijing today, says a press release.
Though at an unofficial level, the mission's visit is being given a great deal of importance, and it is expected that the visit will significantly contribute to the development of mutual understanding and amity in different areas deserving attention.
It may be noted here that Enam A Chaudhury was the first Bangladeshi government representative to have led a delegation to China in late 1974, before China's formal recognition of Bangladesh. At that time, he concluded 5 agreements with several Chinese governmental agencies for export and import of commercial items. This good-will mission will be received by the Chairman and the Secretary General of CAFIU, and they will have discussion with the leaders of the National Committee of the people's consultative conference and others on issues of mutual interest. They will hold a meeting with Bank of China representatives, and will particularly focus on strengthening unofficial financial, investment and commercial ties. This delegation, sponsored by the Bangladesh-China People's Friendship Association comprises Messrs Ehsanul Huq, Managing Director of Prime Bank, Imtiaz Hussain, former president of Dhaka Stock Exchange, Mustafizur Rahman, businessman and Syed M Rahman, industrialist with significant Chinese connections. Besides performing other responsibilities, Enam Chaudhury is the chief adviser of Dhakabashi organisation, and will explore avenues to strengthen cultural ties and exchanges.
The National Committee of the People's Political Consultative Conference chief Madam Wang Zhizen will host a dinner in honour of the delegation on October 20, at the Great Hall of the People, Beijing.
The delegation will return to Dhaka on October 25.
