China to expand duty-free access for Bangladeshi goods

China announced to raise duty-free access to 99 percent Bangladeshi products with effect from September 1 this year.

The announcement came during the bilateral meeting between China and Bangladesh on Sunday where Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi led the Chinese delegation.

This is a very significant achievement for Bangladesh as we hope that some of our key exportable goods will be included in the list of this one percent products, State Minister M Shahriar Alam told the newsmen after the closed door meeting.

The one-and-half-hour meeting discussed issues related to Rohingya repatriation, PPP cooperation, Chinese investment, project implementation and easing visa restrictions and geopolitics.

Mr Wang left Dhaka at 10:45 am after his meeting with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
