Finland Eager to Collaborate in Bangladesh’s Renewable Energy Sector

Finland is eager to work with Bangladesh on its sustainable and renewable energy projects. Ritva Koukku-Ronde, Finland’s non-resident ambassador to Bangladesh, indicated his country’s interest during a courtesy call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her official house Ganabhaban on Wednesday.

Following the meeting, Prime Minister Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed the press. The envoy, who is based in New Delhi, presented Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina with a message of greetings from Finland Prime Minister Sanna Mirella Marin, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the two nations’ diplomatic relations. Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina also sent her greetings to her Finnish counterpart.

Bangladesh’s relationship with Nokia, a Finnish multinational telecommunications corporation, can be enhanced further, according to Ritva Koukku-Ronde. She stated that her country will collaborate with UN organizations on the Rohingya issue.

Sheikh Hasina stated in this regard that Rohingya refugees have put a significant drain on Bangladesh’s economy. She stated that the Rohingya people are causing a lot of suffering among the locals. “On the Myanmar border, we don’t allow any insurrection,” she added.

The prime minister also mentioned the Chittagong Hill Tract Treaty, which her government signed in 1997 after bilateral talks and the surrender of 1800 armed cadres. Sheikh Hasina remarked that because Bangladesh has a large number of hi-tech parks, Finnish companies can invest there.

During the meeting, the premier remarked, “During the discussion, we talked about the repercussions of the Ukraine-Russia war. We don’t want to go to war. Our policy is to treat everyone with kindness and not with hatred.”

Bangladesh used to import fertilizer from other countries, but the cost of shipping has increased dramatically as a result of the war. Bangladesh, she added, requires assistance from rich countries in order to develop. Bangladesh will continue to do agricultural research to ensure its food security, according to the prime minister, who also stated that no arable area will be left uncultivated in the country.
