Kawasaki Heavy, Mitsubishi seen landing Dhaka train deals

Japanese companies would build cars for capital's first elevated rail line

TOKYO -- Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Mitsubishi Corp. are expected to win orders for train cars and related equipment in Bangladesh as part of the Japanese government's official development assistance program.

The contracts for just over 100 rail cars are worth tens of billions of yen. Last year, the Japan International Cooperation Agency agreed to extend up to 173 billion yen ($1.53 billion) in loans to Bangladesh for six projects -- part of the government's push for infrastructure exports led by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
