The ambassador and his entourage met with representatives of the construction companies, listened to a detailed report on the general introduction of the Payara project, the first phase of operation and maintenance work and the progress of the second phase of the project, and exchanged in-depth views with the construction companies on issues of concern such as safety production, epidemic prevention and control and party building work, and gave important instructions. Ambassador Li Jieming highly affirmed the Payara project and thanked all the participants of the project for their outstanding contribution to the friendship between China and Bangladesh and instructed the representatives of the construction companies to continue to play a good role as a benchmark for the Payara project in Bangladesh.
