Agartala, Sep 9: Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar is hopeful that Bangladeshi investors will show interest in India''s north-east.

Sarkar, who visited the neighbouring country along with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh earlier this week, today said the business leaders of the country discussed the issues relating to setting up industries with the four Chief Ministers of the region and they expressed their interest for investment.

However, he said, there are some legal bindings for the investors of Bangladesh in investing in foreign countries.

Besides Sarkar, Chief Ministers of Assam, Meghalaya and Mizoram had visited Bangladesh.

Sarkar said the prime minister''s visit would help strengthening the bilateral ties between the two countries because the attitude of both the countries were very positive in solving pending issues.

He said the border dispute at Muhurirchar in South Tripura district and Chandannagar in Dhalai district in the state would be solved now after the inking of an agreement on border demarcation.

Sarkar, who is also the state Home Minister, said both sides have agreed that their soil would not be allowed by any elements which can cause harm to the interest of the other country.
