Industries Minister Nurul Majid Mahmud Humayun, currently on tour in Thailand, urged the country’s entrepreneurs to invest in the food and beverage sector in Bangladesh, holding up its huge potential.
He made the call Saturday while visiting Thai Beverage, better known as ThaiBev, Thailand's largest and one of Southeast Asia's largest beverage companies.
