Hong Kong has risen to the position of one of the top 10 foreign investors in Bangladesh, investing $1.8 billion to date mainly in the textile and energy industries, said Rizwan Rahman, president of the Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry, (DCCI).
Bangladesh’s trade with the country has already passed the $1 billion mark, he said on Monday.
Rahman spoke about ‘Exploring business and Investment opportunities for Bangladesh via Hong Kong’, in a seminar jointly sponsored by the DCCI and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and held at the Lakeshore Hotel in Dhaka,
He suggested that other nations could look to Bangladesh’s trade potential and be inspired by Hong Kong’s investment successes.
Hong Kong is a significant hub for Asia-Pacific trade and finance, allowing companies to take advantage of enormous prospects, Rahman added.
After becoming a developing country, Bangladesh needs foreign investment, especially in infrastructure, finance, services and manufacturing sectors, Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi said at the event.
