US keen to work in renewable energy sector: Bernicat

DHAKA, April 17, 2017 (BSS) - US Ambassador in Dhaka Marcia S Bernicat today said her country is interested to work in renewable energy sector of Bangladesh.

"Companies from the public and private sectors are showing their keen interests to work in Bangladesh's power and energy sector," she said this while paying a courtesy call on State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid at his ministry office today.

Reciprocating to the US envoy's sentiment, the state minister said the US investment in power and energy sector of Bangladesh is very less compared to other countries.

He urged the US envoy to take effective initiative to increase US investment in this potential sector.

Among others, the Power Cell Director General Engineer Mohammad Hossain was present during the meeting.
