Bhutan has expressed keenness in procuring 2.5 to 3 thousand metric tonnes of fertilizer from Bangladesh.
Bhutanese Ambassador in Dhaka Rinchen Kuentsyl expressed the interest while paying a courtesy call on Industries Minister Nurul Majid Mahmud Humayun at his office in the capital, said a press release on Tuesday.
In his speech, Humayun thanked Bhutan for its continued support during the Liberation War of Bangladesh and assured to work together with the country (Bhutan).

To this end, he said, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) will be signed soon with the concerned authorities of Bangladesh Chemical Industries Corporation (BCIC) and Bhutan in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
