Responding to a question on people-to-people contact, he said friendship between Japan and Bangladesh started immediately after the independence of Bangladesh. Also in the field of business, there are currently more than 260 Japanese companies operating their businesses in Bangladesh, and interaction through business is also growing rapidly. Toward this anniversary, we are working hard to enhance our bilateral relations even further,” said the Japanese Ambassador.
