Vikram Doraiswami, High Commissioner of India said, “The road to regional progress and prosperity runs through the success of our (India-Bangladesh) partnership in the automobile industry.” He underscored the excellent bilateral relations shared between India and Bangladesh, one of the key drivers for the future of which he said, is the process of realizing the enormous latent economic potential of the relationship.
