Bangladesh National Day
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.
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.
