  • Published at 08:57 pm September 23rd, 2014

In a strong bid to regain the GSP (generalized system of preferences), the country's apex trade-body is taking a strong move at a major business forum scheduled for September 24 and 26 at New York, USA, reports BSS.

Kazi Akram Uddin Ahmed, president of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI), will lead the move at the high level business meeting, organised jointly by the American Chamber and American Business Council with International Chamber and United States Business Council Forum.

A 70-memebr business team of FBCCI left Dhaka on Sunday with the delegation of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to attend the 69th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). The FBCCI team will attend the business forum and some other business discussions on the sidelines of the UNGA.

"The demand for duty and quota free access of Bangladeshi products to the US market would be raised strongly at the business meetings and discussions," a FBCCI statement said on Tuesday.
