Dhaka, Sept 28 (UNB)- United News of Bangladesh (UNB) and Chinese news agency Xinhua on Thursdaysigned a news exchange agreement, aiming to deepen the mutual cooperation between China and Bangladesh through providing respective news agencies’ services to each other for circulation.
UNB Chairman Amanullah Khan and Xinhua Bureau Chief in Dhaka Liu Chuntao signed the agreement on behalf of their respective sides at Cosmos Centre in the city.
Speaking at the agreement-signing programme, UNB Chairman Amanullah Khan expressed the hope that the news exchange agreement would not only expand the scope and add value to UNB service to the clients but also go a long way toward propelling the bilateral relationship between the two friendly countries to a new height.
