UAE-based investors have pledged to invest $10 billion in Bangladesh’s energy, ports, power and infrastructure sectors in a daylong Forum held in Dubai on Sept 15.
Led by the Prime Minister’s Private Industry and Investment Adviser Salman F. Rahman, a 20-member government delegation, including BIDA chief Md. Sirazul Islam and top representatives of BEZA and BHTPA, joined the event participated by more than 300 government officials, business leaders, investors and entrepreneurs.
In his keynote address, Salman F Rahman urged the Gulf States to “take advantage of the lower cost of investing and operating in Bangladesh and achieving higher return.” The Bangladesh Economic Forum is a private sector initiative undertaken by UAE-based, non-resident Bangladeshi professionals and entrepreneurs.
