Matiur Rahman, chairman and managing director of Uttara Group, is set to receive an award from Japan for his contribution in promoting economic interaction and mutual understanding between Japan and Bangladesh.

Matiur, also the first President of Japan-Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JBCCI), will be one of the two Bangladeshis to receive “the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rosette”, along with Mohd Abu Sayed, former Country Manager of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission in Bangladesh, said the Japanese Embassy in Dhaka on Thursday.

Matiur Rahman contributed to the establishment of JBCCI and the promotion of the investment of Japanese companies in Bangladesh as the first chairman of JBCCI from 2004 to 2006, making efforts to improve the business environment for Japanese companies and to build a strong economic partnership between the two countries.

More than 300 Japanese companies are currently operating in Bangladesh and the number has tripled in the past 10 years.

Sayed will be receiving it in appreciation of his great contribution to taking care of Japanese graves in Bangladesh.

He maintained the war cemeteries including war graves of Japanese casualties in Cumilla and Chattogram as the former country manager of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission in Bangladesh for about 33 years from 1987.

Respecting the spirit of the Geneva Conventions, he worked in good faith to keep the war cemeteries clean and tranquil, without any distinction between casualties of the Commonwealth of Nations and Japan, said the embassy.
