The governments of India and Bangladesh have finalised the standard operating procedure (SOP) for the use of the Chattogram and Mongla ports for the movement of goods to and from India. The SOP on the use of the two ports has been finalised after the countries signed an MoU on June 6, 2015 and an agreement on October 25, 2018.
