DHAKA, Dec 2: Board of Investment (BoI) has planned to carry out a comprehensive campaign abroad to attract foreign investment in some promising areas such as shipbuilding, leather, electronics and automobile assembling. BoI has decided to include some experts from private sector in its team to make the campaign a success, said a BoI official. As part of its move, the BoI is going to organise an “Investors’ Forum” in Hong Kong on December 8 with a slogan- ‘Bangladesh: Your Dream Investment Destination’.
“As our prime objective is to attract foreign direct investment (FDI), we have decided to carry out this campaign to inform potential investors about the incentive package Bangladesh is offering to them,” said the BoI official.
BoI will not have to spend money from its fund for its Hong Kong programme as HSBC and LIFUNG, a buying house, have come forward to sponsor the event, said the official of the state-run investment promotion and facilitation agency.
After the Hong Kong event, BoI will organise three more overseas investment promotion seminars and an investment fair in Dhaka in 2012. In April, BoI will organise a seminar in Berlin, Germany, he said, adding that shipbuilding, a promising sector, will be the prime focus in Berlin .
BoI will also organize two such events-one in Sweden in May and another in China in June, he told BSS. He said an investment fair will be held in Dhaka in March.
About its upcoming Hong Kong event, the BoI official said they have already competed its preparation. BSS
