A business delegation of United Arab Emirates (UAE) yesterday expressed its keen interest to do business in Bangladesh. The delegation also said they are ready to help and guide Bangladeshi businessmen who want to invest or set up businesses in the UAE. The developments came after a three-member UAE-based business delegation held a meeting with the prime minister’s private industry and investment affairs adviser Salman Fazlur Rahman, MP at Gulshan in the capital.
Salman F Rahman said Bangladesh government would support any initiative in this regard to help business and investment. The delegation, led by Waleid Bin Abdulkareim-- CEO of OnTime Group, informed the adviser that the company was granted permission by the government of the UAE to launch a ‘business hub’ for potential UAE-based investors and entrepreneurs.
In coordination with the embassy of the UAE in Dhaka, the hub will be an information dissemination point to help the investors and business people.
The hub also seeks to help and guide Bangladeshi businessmen who want to invest or set up businesses in the UAE. The delegation sought the adviser’s help in this regard.
Appreciating the effort being undertaken by Waleid Bin Abdulkareim, Salman F Rahman assured the delegation that he would wholeheartedly support any initiative that is intended to ease the process of doing business and facilitating investment in Bangladesh.
He expressed optimism that the endeavour would motivate Emirati businesses to invest in Bangladesh’s booming economy and encourage others to follow the suit. The UAE-based delegation also included Yasmine Khan, LLM, an international litigation and arbitration expert.
