A Bangladesh-South Korea conference on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and economic growth will be held virtually on Sunday (June 27, 2021) to discuss ways to further deepen Korean companies’ engagement with local communities.
The South Korean Embassy in Dhaka and the CSR Centre in partnership with Korea Trade Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) Dhaka office are jointly organizing the "Korea-Bangladesh CSR Conference 2021: CSR for Human Resource Development and Economic Growth”.
The conference will be held from 5pm to 6:35pm.
Planning Minister MA Mannan will join the event as the chief guest.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is increasingly becoming important, especially for developing nations, said the Korean Embassy in Dhaka.
As Bangladesh strives towards attaining economic development with the target set out in the Sustainable Development Goals, CSR strategies and policy implementation are becoming a part of the core business strategy for private companies, it said.
Representatives from Youngone Corporation, Samsung R&D Institute (SRBD), Samsung Electronics, Hyundai E&C, and Dohwa Engineering will present their respective CSR activities in Bangladesh.
With sharing of best practices by Korean companies operating in Bangladesh, the conference aims to revisit the importance of the private sector’s role in maintaining a balanced and sustainable society as well as to promote the strong bilateral commercial ties between Korea and Bangladesh.
