Bangladesh exported products worth $1.118 billion to Canada and imported $498.16 million from there in fiscal year 2017-18 (FY18).
Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi made the disclosure while High Commissioner of Canada to Bangladesh Benoit Prefontaine called on him at the secretariat in the city on Monday.
The minister laid emphasis on forming a forum to expand trade and investment and enhancing relation between Bangladesh and Canada.
He also hoped that the ongoing trade and investment will get momentum in the coming days.
Benoit Prefontaine said Canada is interested to expedite trade and investment in Bangladesh.
The minister said both the governments will take steps if businessmen of the two countries shared their experience and gave recommendations to them after visiting each other’s countries.
