Bangladesh now a most ideal place for investment: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today called Bangladesh as the most ideal place for investment in the world, seeking larger foreign and local investment for mutual benefit.

"Bangladesh is the most ideal place for investment in the world as we offered maximum investment opportunities. So, I hope overseas investment will come here and local people will also invest in their own country," she said.

 The prime minister said this while inaugurating the formal operation of the Japanese Economic Zone in the Bangladesh Special Economic Zone (BSEZ) at Araihazar in Narayanganj district on the outskirts of the capital.

She joined the function virtually from her official Ganabhaban residence in the capital.

The premier mentioned that Bangladesh could be a market of 300 crore people with 17 crore of its own, 50 crore in east, 150 crore in north and 50 crore in west due to its geographical location.

The different countries of the world can invest in Bangladesh largely to reap benefits of the vast market, she added.

She also said that her government has attached topmost priority to planned industrialisation alongside agriculture by protecting the country's environment and arable lands.
