He was addressing a two-day training on 'how to export to China through e-commerce' jointly organized by the DCCI and International Trade Centre at the DCCI auditorium.

Economic and Commercial Counsellor at the Chinese Embassy in Dhaka Li Guangjun was present and inaugurated the training. About 25 participants took part in the training session.
