The Foreign Investors’ Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) will unveil the roadmap for foreign direct investment (FDI) for Bangladesh in November marking the fifty years of independence of the country.

The chamber will focus on research-based actions for Agribusiness, Digital Economy and Green Finance, three growth drivers of Bangladesh at the summit scheduled to hold on November 21 in Dhaka, said a FICCI handout on Wednesday.

In regards to the report, each of these growth drivers has the potential to help the country achieve its economic goals, such as increasing employment opportunities for the people of Bangladesh, FDI, impact on small and medium enterprises (SME), achieving sustainable growth, and unlocking doors to new investment opportunities.

The forum will also discuss the key aspects to generate more FDI and ways to achieve the Developed Bangladesh goal.

FICCI has plans to continue the momentum of the three growth drivers to bring in more FDI and to have more engagement with the government.

Planning Minister MA Mannan is scheduled attending the summit as chief guest while Salman F Rahman, Private Industry and Investment Adviser to Prime Minister, will join as special guest at the session chaired by FICCI Executive Member Shwapna Bhowmick.

FICCI President Rupali Haque Chowdhury, FICCI Vice President MHM Fairoz, Executive Member Naser Ezaz Bijoy and Executive Director TIM Nurul Kabir will also present at the meeting.
