Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said Bangladesh will export liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to India not liquefied natural gas (LNG).
She made the statement while addressing a press conference on her recently concluded official tour to US and India, at Ganabhaban in Dhaka on Wednesday.
“Now, we are importing LPG from abroad and some of it will be exported to Tripura of India,” the premier said.
The premier also added that Tripura will produce electricity from the LPG imported from Bangladesh.
On September 22, the prime minister went to New York on an eight-day visit to attend the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
After returning from US, she went to India on October 3 to attend the India Economic Summit 2019 of the World Economic Forum (WEF).
During her four-day official visit, Sheikh Hasina also held a bilateral meeting with her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi and met Indian President Ram Nath Kovind on October 5.
The two prime ministers jointly launched three bilateral development projects and witnessed the signing of seven bilateral documents between the two neighbours.
