Mongolia has appointed Nasreen Fatema Awal as its Honorary Consul for Bangladesh, a foreign ministry official said.

Nasreen Fatma Awal is president of Women Entrepreneurs Association of Bangladesh (WEAB) and the only woman CIP (Commercially Important Person) in the country.
 
Synonymous with its most famous son Ghengis Khan, who founded the greatest Land Empire the world has ever seen and conquered much of China as well as lands to the west, Mongolia is a massive country of 1.5 million square kilometres.
 
Nearly 10 times the size of Bangladesh, the country's population is only 2.38 million, making it one of the most sparsely inhabited areas of the world with only 1.5 people per square kilometre.
 
The capital, Ulan Baatar, still bears testimony to its strong communist past. Mongolia became the world's second communist state in the early 1920s.
 
"True there is not much of trade between our two countries. My main task will be to work on that and explore economic opportunities," Nasreen Awal told bdnews24.com.
