Mr. Greg O'Neill, Managing Director of Barrett Communications said, "The long standing and successful relationship we have with the Bangladesh MoD must be credited to the strong relationship we have with Mr. S.A. Bahadur, Managing Director, and his team at Radiant Corporation.
“The Bangladesh MoD represents a significant part of our sales in the Asian region and we look forward to continuing this relationship well into the future." Neill added.
