Vieira added that Bangladesh, as a new voice of the Global South, can make a significant contribution to BRICS on a range of issues.

As part of his programme in Dhaka, Vieira was received on Monday by Hasina, with whom he held a meeting to discuss the possibilities of increasing direct trade between the two countries and the need for trade balance and improving the existing bilateral relations.
