AmCham mourns Latifur Rahman’s death


The Executive Committee of the American Chamber of Commerce in Bangladesh (AmCham) is “deeply shocked” at the sad demise of Latifur Rahman, Chairman of the Transcom Group.

In a statement signed by its President Syed Ershad Ahmed, AmCham said, he has been “a symbol of successful entrepreneurship in the domain of commerce and industry of Bangladesh contributing immensely to the country’s development.” 

“Firm self-determination, hard practice and far-sighted steps brought for him this recognition in Bangladesh and beyond,” read the statement.  

“This is an extraordinary loss not only for Transcom family but also for the entire nation.” AmCham said he would be remembered for his “outstanding” contribution in many fields of business, and his “remarkable” contribution to the national economy.

“The success achieved by Latifur Rahman also belongs to the motherland, people of the country and the upcoming new generation. We gratefully remember his many contributions to the AmCham as an esteemed member.”

They also prayed for the salvation of the departed soul. 

AmCham Bangladesh awarded him in 2001 as “AmCham Business Executive of the Year”.
