    Dhaka, Sep 27 (bdnews24.com) – China is interested to build a deep seaport in Bangladesh and now waiting for the government's response to go ahead, says Chinese ambassador to Dhaka Zhang Xianyi.

    "Two Chinese companies have expressed their desire to develop the port but the ball is now not in the court of the Chinese side," he said at a roundtable on Bangladesh-China bilateral relations organised by Bangladesh Institute of International and Strategic Studies (BIISS) in the city.

    The last I heard of this is that the Bangladesh Govt was not too happy with the Chinese Feasibility study and has asked for the resubmission of the same, after incorporating the requirements of Bangladesh.

    This extract indicates the Bangladesh is keener to improve the existing infrastructure.

    Because it will be linking China to Bangladesh via Myanmar, Myanmar will have to take it easy with the Rohingya menace that they are currently combating.

    What is the possibility of China faking the feasibility of the port to make sure it gets the contract to make the port and get a hold in BD?

    China never does anything without a long term necessity for itself!
