Singapore to elevate consulate in Dhaka to high commission

The upgrade was shared by Singapore's Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan to Bangladesh's Foreign Minister A.K. Abdul Momen on September 20 during a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the 78th United Nations General Assembly in New York, Xinhua news agency reported, citing United News of Bangladesh.

Momen had earlier requested the Singaporean Foreign Minister to set up a full-fledged mission in Dhaka that would benefit both countries while calling for more investment from Singapore in Bangladesh's special economic zones.
