Menon courts Qatar on halal tourism
Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister Rashed Khan Menon sought cooperation of Qatar on Thursday to expand religious and halal tourism in Bangladesh, according to BSS.

The minister made the urge when Qatar Ambassador to Bangladesh Ahmed Mohamed Al-Dehaimi called on him at the Secretariat in the capital.

During the meeting, Menon also sought Qatar's investment in the exclusive tourist zone at Sarang in Cox's Bazar.

"Qatar is a developed and modern Muslim country of the Middle East and Bangladesh is also a tolerant Muslim country. We have still huge opportunities to expand commerce and trade relations between these two brotherly Muslim nations," the minister said.

The Ambassador informed the minister that a high-level Qatar delegate would visit Bangladesh soon to explore new avenues of cooperation between the two countries.

 The envoy requested the minister to send a formal proposal to the Qatar government for investment in the exclusive tourist zone in Cox's Bazar.
