PM invites more German investment in Bangladesh


PV Desk : Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today urged the German entrepreneurs to invest more in Bangladesh, taking the advantage of cheap labour and other facilities here.

She made the request when German parliament member Dr. Hans-Peter Uhi called on her at the Prime Minister’s office.

Briefing reporters after the meeting, PM’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim said the Prime Minister mentioned about the economic cooperation and bilateral trade between the two countries.

She told the German MP that her government is setting up some 100 economic zones across the country to attract more foreign investments and thus spur economic growth.

She recalled the contributions of Germany during the War of Liberation of Bangladesh. Recalling her last month visit to Germany, the Prime Minister said the current Bangladesh-Germany relationship is very strong.
