Japan-based JERA Company Incorporated’s president Satoshi Onoda and Bangladesh-based Summit Group’s founder chairman Muhammed Aziz Khan paid a call to prime minister Sheikh Hasina at her office in Dhaka on Monday.

The prime minister was pleased with the private sector partnership of the two companies in developing infrastructure as the partnership also reflects friendship between the two countries, said a press release.
