DCCI to organise B2B conclave to attract FDI

Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) is going to organize the first and largest international virtual B2B meet titled “DCCI Business Conclave-2020” from January 5 to 7 with an aim to attract FDI and joint ventures.

The conclave will also focus on sourcing cost-efficient destinations for import and exploring potential export destinations and increasing business to business interactions globally especially in the wake of new normal situation.

Representatives from 227 companies from 10 countries including Bangladesh will participate in the event from which 90 companies are from Bangladesh and 137 companies are from other 9 countries.

The participating countries are Algeria, China, Egypt, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Poland, Turkey, Vietnam and Bangladesh.

Total 176 B2B match-making will take place in three days. Participating companies are mainly from apparel & textile, light engineering, medicine, leather goods, plastic products, agro and food processing, IT and ITES sectors.

The B2B match-making will be followed by a virtual inaugural ceremony where Foreign Minister  Dr AK Abdul Momen, is scheduled to join as the chief guest while Bangladesh Investment Development Authority (BIDA) Executive Chairman Md Sirazul Islam will join as the special guest on January 5.

Dhaka Chamber believes that through this virtual conclave, foreign investors will be able to find potential sectors to invest in Bangladesh having direct consultation with their counterparts.

They will also be able to know about the fiscal and non-fiscal incentives provided by the government of Bangladesh.

The conclave will help the local entrepreneurs explore cost effective sources for import and find out potential market for export.

In the ‘New Normal’ situation when physical connectivity and direct business to business interactions are halted, DCCI takes this initiative of bringing up entrepreneurs across the globe under a single platform to discuss and find possible business explorations for the sake of greater economic development, said the organizers.
