MNA Business Desk: Foreign Minister Abul Hassan Mahmood Ali has put importance on unlocking potentials in trade and investment between Bangladesh and Canada and sought more Canadian investment for economic growth.
“I urge our Canadian friends for more Canadian investment in Bangladesh and hope that CanCham will also play an enabling role in this regard,” he said in his dinner speech at Hotel Le Meriden.
Canada-Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CanCham) hosted the dinner to celebrate the 150th years of Canada Confederation.
The foreign minister said Canadian entrepreneurs may contribute to the economic growth of both the countries by investing in the 100 Economic Zones being established all over Bangladesh especially in power, energy, transportation, ICT, food and agro processing, light engineering, services and hospitality sectors.
“With a stable political environment and a highly positive economic outlook forecast by leading Market Analysts, we offer a conducive environment for trade and investment for our friends in Canada. Our growth forecast is more than 7% for the fiscal year ending in June, 2017,” he said.
