Bangladesh National Day

Bangladesh honours its founding father

BANGLADESH is celebrating the birth centenary of its founding father, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and honouring him through year-long activities this year. Bangabandhu, as he is popularly known in the country, led the freedom struggle that resulted in the founding of Bangladesh as an independent country in 1971 and was its first Prime Minister.

Bangladesh seeks Singapore investments

SINGAPORE companies are showing an increasing interest to invest in Bangladesh in view of the friendly bilateral relations and improving economic conditions in the country of 167 million people with a growing middle class. A business delegation from Singapore visited Bangladesh last August to explore investment opportunities, says its High Commissioner in Singapore, Md Mustafizur Rahman.

Bangladesh, Singapore share good ties

BANGLADESH and Singapore enjoy good bilateral relations and are working together to make them even stronger, says Bangladesh High Commissioner in Singapore, Md Mustafizur Rahman. The close cooperation between the two countries is evidenced by the fact that Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina paid her first official visit to Singapore earlier last year. Also noteworthy is the fact that Singapore's Foreign Minister, Vivian Balakrishnan, visited Bangladesh in November 2018.

Bangladesh's big draws for business

BANGLADESH'S attractive potential was highlighted at the highest level when Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina during her official visit to Singapore, last year, spoke at the opening session of the full-day Bangladesh-Singapore Business Forum 2018. Jointly organised by the Singapore Business Federation and International Enterprise Singapore, the forum was attended by 200 Singapore company representatives and members of her business delegation.
