Bangladesh has expressed strong interest in importing Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) from Algeria, given the country’s rising energy demands.
During a meeting with his Algerian counterpart Ahmed Attaf, Bangladesh’s Foreign Minister Dr. Ak Abdul Momen emphasized the critical significance that partnerships between the two countries may play in properly tackling this energy crisis. As such, Algeria and Bangladesh are actively developing a time-bound plan to strengthen collaboration, particularly in growing areas of mutual interest.
In addition to LNG, areas of potential cooperation include pharmaceuticals, Information Technology, defense, construction and agriculture.
Algeria’s expanding LNG exports and collaborations, such as the one with Bangladesh, are positioned to boost its position in the global energy scene. Algerian gas is of significance to more than only Bangladesh. Following the war in Ukraine, Algeria has sought Italy to strengthen key energy relations.
