"This mission is the first-of-its-kind in South Asia and Business France's team together with its partners in France, Bangladesh and in India have worked hard since the beginning of the year to bring together all major stakeholders of the jute sector in order to develop partnerships in all fields. Opportunities are numerous and France wishes to position itself as a strong partner of Bangladesh & India in this field." says Sophie Clavelier, Director Business France, South Asia.
