The Padma Bridge, set to be inaugurated Saturday, will play an important role in fostering greater bilateral and subregional connectivity, said the Indian High Commission in Dhaka.

"The Padma Bridge would not only help improve intra-Bangladesh connectivity, but it will also provide much-needed impetus to logistics and businesses connecting India and our shared subregion," said the high commission in a media release on Friday night.

Ahead of the inauguration of the Padma Bridge by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the government and people of India conveyed greetings and felicitations to the government and people of Bangladesh on the successful completion of this landmark project.

The completion of this long-awaited project is testimony to the courageous decisions and far-sighted leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, said the high commission.

"This success vindicated the prime minister's decisions and also our conviction in this regard, as expressed through our steadfast support when Bangladesh decided to proceed with the project alone," reads the media release.

The people of India once again congratulated the fraternal people of Bangladesh on the momentous occasion of the inauguration of the Padma Bridge and on the 50th anniversary of Bangladesh’s Liberation

I'd like to export more to Kolkata so our products take more of Indian Eastern Market. We take enough of their crap already (including products). :-)

But Indians as usual talking about taking more of our money by exporting their stuff....

Do you really expect more exports to India? It will not materialize. The railway link is meant for Indian exports to BD and its domestic trade between its NE and Kolkata.

More than 2000 BD products have been given preferential treatment by China. Any other country would have fully taken this opportunity to expand its industrial base.

But, BD is not bothered by the China given opportunity and it has no plans to build industries to satisfy Chinese market demands.

BD has only a few products also for offer to India. No industrial plants are built in BD to feed Indian market demands.

So, do not please think BD will ever increase its exports to India. Padma bridge is to assist India’s quest for its domestic east-west trades.

I think you are probably right. Some of the India shills (maybe Indians) present too much propaganda here, and I was starting to believe it.... :-(

BD is giving so much to India since 1971. So, I was suggesting BD to ask for Indian reciprocity to buy Russian wheat instead of buying it directly. It was another thread , though!!

Congrats to BD and Sk Hasina govt. Lot of people saying AL benefited a lot from corruption but I dont think it will be any different with any other govt.(not saying corruption is good, its just a fact of life in a lot of countries)
I sincerely believe it has potential to transform south BD.(not just a hope)

Finally, the truth has been spoken.
The real truth is India puts many impediments at the border stations to stop imports from BD. The case in point is hydrogen peroxide. Otherwise, BD could have exported at least $4 billion worth of goods. Bd is capable to destroy the Indian garments industry.

@bluesky bhai Indian garments industry is finished anyway, they can't compete with Bangladesh in that sector.

However I do agree that exports would have gone up many fold if Indian customs (at the behest of Indian banyas) did not place non-tariff barriers (NTBs) based on unproveable excuses. For example on battery export from Bangladesh Indian customs stated that parts are made in China and assembled in Bangladesh. Which is 100% inaccurate.

They just want to protect their own industries and won't open up their markets.
