PM Hasina welcomes more South Korean investment in Bangladesh
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday welcomed more South Korean investment in Bangladesh, saying it helps her government to achieve its main aim of building a developed country. The prime minister made the comment when meeting South Korean Ambassador to Bangladesh Ahn Seong-doo at Ganabhaban on Thursday morning. “Bangladesh now has access from Chattogram to the south-east Asian countries including Thailand, Vietnam and Laos, and my government is working to expand trade and commerce with countries in the region,” the prime minister said. The South Korean ambassador hoped that Bangladesh would be one of the major electronic goods manufacturing countries in the world, as the country is marching ahead by establishing EPZs and special economic zones. “Bangladesh-Korea economic cooperation is successful,” Seong-doo said. “(We) have already started manufacturing electronic goods in joint venture initiatives.” The envoy added that South Korea is also a major investor in Bangladesh’s ready-made garment sector. In response, the prime minister said South Korea was also benefiting from its investments in the EPZs of Bangladesh. Pointing out Bangladesh’s huge progress in the ICT sector, Hasina said her government had put emphasis on establishing small and medium scale industries instead of heavy ones. She also raised the issue of the “Learning and Earning project” which the Korean Ambassador highly appreciated. Ahn Seong-doo also lauded Bangladesh’s socio-economic uplift achieved under Hasina’s leadership.
