The Bangladesh Business Summit and the Golden Jubilee celebration of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industries (FBCCI) are taking place in capital Dhaka. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the summit. We wish the summit and the celebration of FBCCI a grand success.

Bangladesh Business Summit is an international trade and investment promotion event that is envisaged to become the country’s flagship business event.

The summit is highlighting the economic and market strengths of Bangladesh, and the concrete trade and investment opportunities of the country by convening national and global business leaders, investors, policymakers, practitioners, policy and market analysts, academia, and innovators. Besides, it is also highlighting the success story that has set the foundations for the sustainable growth trajectory of Bangladesh.

Bangladesh Business Summit will also showcase the dynamic business investment opportunities and the improvements and business environment reforms, and gain insights into the investment priorities of the global investors to improve policy, facilitate the exchange of investment success stories and good practices among investors.

We hope that this summit will be

 an instrument to highlight Bangladesh's

 status of progress in the economic and

 social fronts to the global arena

Inflation has increased, prices of all essentials went beyond the purchasing capacity, as a result, not only the developing nations like Bangladesh but also developed countries are struggling. The Covid-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine crisis have resulted in an abnormal increase in energy price, food price, agricultural production cost, industrial raw materials, parts, and transportation cost. High inflation is also affecting the currency exchange rates adding that rising cost of doing business have made it difficult for local entrepreneurs to survive in the global competition.

The government has been investing in infrastructure, promoting entrepreneurship, and up-skilling the workforce with the vision of developing an advanced- prosperous nation and a ‘Smart Bangladesh’ by 2041 as dreamt by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. We think the top business leaders and entrepreneurs across the political divides need a prime minister like Sheikh Hasina for next term again, as she is the ‘symbol of hope’ for the entire business community and common people as well for the country’s thriving growth.

Bangladesh Business Summit is an important event for the business leaders as the world is now facing a complex combination of challenges because of economic recession created by Covid-19 pandemic and Russia-Ukraine war. We hope that this summit will be an instrument to highlight Bangladesh's status of progress in the economic and social fronts to the global arena.
