The Bangladeshi Parliamentary Standing Committee on Shipping Ministry has recommended continuing dredging of the Mongla-Ghoshiakhali channel under the supervision of Water Development Board, the Financial Express reports.
The recommendation was made at the 26th meeting of the committee at the Jatiya Sangsad (JS) Bhaban – the house of the Bangladeshi Parliament.
Shipping Minister, Shajahan Khan, and other committee members, M. Abdul Latif, Ranajit Kumar Roy, M. Anwarul Azim and Prof. Mamtaz Begum Advocate, attended the meeting.
