We welcome you to participate in the upcoming Showcase Bangladesh: 2021 China-Bangladesh Investment Virtual Forum jointly organized by Bangladesh Investment Development Authority (BIDA), Prime Minister’s Office of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh and Standard Chartered bank.
This virtual summit will showcase the perspective of a partnership between Bangladesh and China.
Bangladesh as an investment destination has achieved a remarkable GDP growth rate of 8.2% in FY 2018-19, recording one of the highest in Asia-Pacific regions. The nation is on track to become an upper-middle-income country by 2030 and a developed country by 2041.
Bangladesh is also poised to be on the receiving end of the ‘demographic dividend’ over the next few decades. An increasing flow of FDI in the last 5 years’ portraits the confident mindset of the existing investors.
We have proven ourselves to be a resilient country even in the face of a global pandemic. Bangladesh has been lauded by global organizations like the World Bank and IMF to be one of the world’s top fastest-growing economies.
These developments highlight the emerging strategic opportunities in the highly promising Bangladesh China trade and investment corridor.
Delegates representing Chinese and Bangladeshi public and private sectors, policymakers, investors, bankers and economists will be in attendance. Mr M. A. Mannan, MP, Honourable Planning Minister, Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh has consented to grace the occasion as Chief Guest and Mr Salman Fazlur Rahman, MP, Private Industry and Investment Adviser to the Honourable Prime Minister has consented to grace the occasion as Special Guest.
