Spain has expressed its interest to give financial assistance to the ship-building sector in Bangladesh.

Spanish Ambassador Francisco De Asis Benitez Salas expressed his country's interest in this regard as he met State Minister for Shipping Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury at the latter's office at the secretariat here today, a press release said.
