Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN)- Korea and Bangladesh are in the best position to leverage their relationship, as both the countries share the same history of sufferings under colonial regime as well as fight against poverty, Ambassador of Republic of Korea to Bangladesh Cho Tae Young said on Thursday.  

He was speaking as the chief guest of the inauguration ceremony of Woori Bank’s new office at Suvastu Imam Square at Gulshan-1 in the capital Dhaka on the day.

President of Korea-Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KBCCI) Engineer Kamaluddin said, “The need of a new office for Woori Bank denotes increased clients’ trust with the bank.”
