Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Thursday sought investment from US companies in diversified areas as Bangladesh offers plenty of opportunities for foreign investors.
“Here is a place to make money through investment, you’re most welcome to make investment in Bangladesh,” he said.
Dr Momen described the relationship between Bangladesh and the United States “very strong” which will be much stronger in the days to come.
The Foreign Minister said the US can diversify its investment in Bangladesh and renewable energy is an area for the US companies to invest.
He said there are huge potentials for closer cooperation as the two countries have a very strong relationship. “There’s a scope for improving our investment and trade relations. We’ll be doing much better in the coming days.”
Dr Momen was addressing a function marking the 25th anniversary of the American Chamber of Commerce in Bangladesh (AmCham Bangladesh) at a city hotel.
Prime Minister’s Private Sector Industry and Investment Adviser Salman F Rahman, US Ambassador to Bangladesh Earl R Miller and AmCham President Syed Ershad Ahmed also spoke on the occasion.
