Sabu appreciated the economic development of Bangladesh under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina.

“The country’s 7.78 percent GDP growth is highly appreciable,” he said.

About the Rohingya crisis, he said Malaysia will continue supporting Bangladesh over the repatriation of forcibly displaced Rohingyas.

Sheikh Hasina said the international pressure should continue on Myanmar for taking their nationals back.

She said Bangladesh is now developing an island for relocating the Rohingyas.

Describing the South and Southeast Asian countries as resourceful ones, Sheikh Hasina stressed the need for cooperation among the countries to expedite the development pace of this region.

Focusing on development of agricultural sector in Bangladesh, she said Bangladesh is now a food-sufficient country. “We've developed saline and drought-tolerant rice variety, too.”
