The Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) has invited US entrepreneurs to invest in the ICT sector of Bangladesh.
FBCCI President Md Jashim Uddin made the call at a meeting of the US-Bangladesh Business Council, organised by the US Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, a press release said on Friday.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who is now visiting the USA to attend the United Nations General Assembly, was also present at the event.
Jashim Uddin said the USA should take the advantage of investing in Bangladesh, the fastest growing economy in South Asia, regional supply chains and its demographic dividend.
“Bangladesh could also benefit from America’s expertise in research and service innovation,” he said.
Expressing hope that the relationship between the USA and Bangladesh will expand beyond the traditional areas, the FBCCI chief said, “We should now explore growing prospects in frontier technologies, robotics and blockchain, space, bio-health, and others.”
