Said Land Minister Saifuzzaman Chowdhury, MP today, Wednesday, while speaking at the ‘America Bangladesh Business Convention 2019’ as the chief guest at the Samson H. Chowdhury Centre in the Dhaka Club.
Saifuzzaman Chowdhury also told that Bangladesh had many decades of development efforts at lifting the economy out of its abject poverty while achieving many of the Millennium Development Goals. The present government started its journey in 2009 with the conviction of creating a poverty-free and non-discriminatory prosperous Bangladesh with a clear goal of achieving vision 2021 envisaged by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, said Minister.
Minister called upon expatriate Bangladeshi and American entrepreneur and business communities to invest more in Bangladesh.
” I will urge upon the business community to take the opportunity to invest in Bangladesh and to import more quality products from Bangladesh” Minister said.
The speakers said that the business relationship with America should be properly utilized by Bangladesh. There is a great deal of information gap regarding investment opportunities in Bangladesh. Many of the US businessmen are unaware of Bangladesh’s excellent economic development and investment opportunities. Steps should be taken to eliminate these.
Former US congressman Lawrance La Rocco presented a keynote speech at the convention. Directors of US2BD (American-Bangladesh Development Group) Robert Leggat, Mia Mujibur Rahman and Dr. Ali Afzal were the guests of honor while Dr. Julifa Haider Mohammed Noor A Alam presided over the event.
