BEZA Executive Chairman Paban Chowdhury presided over the function.
In his speech, Ahmad Kaikaus said the present government is determined to build Bangladesh as a developed and prosperous nation by 2041.
“For this, the government is working relentlessly to raise the per capita income to 12 thousand US dollars. We are in competition with other countries to attract foreign investment. Only by increasing the quality of services, we can bring about a positive change in the position of the Ease of Doing Business index and achieve the target of attracting investment,” he added.
Paban Chowdhury said BEZA OSS is ensuring one-stop service to investors not only on paper but also in real sense and will continue to do so in the future.
He further said that even during the Covid-19 period, all kinds of services were being provided from BEZA OSS Center which has led to new investment proposals.
He hoped that the investment will be further enhanced through the added new services.
BEZA is now providing a total of 125 services under OSS centre. Out of the services, investors are now getting 32 services through online.
