DHAKA, June 29, 2018 (BSS) – The Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of
Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) has invited the BCIM countries to invest in oil
refinery, pharmaceuticals, tourism and agro-based industries at the Special
Economic Zones (SEZs) in Bangladesh.
FBCCI Senior Vice-President Fazle Fahim made the call while attending the “13th China-South Asia
Business Forum” held recently in Kunming, China, said a press release today.
The forum was jointly organised by China Council for the Promotion of
International Trade (CCPIT), SAARC Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI)

‘Interconnection, Sharing and Win-win Cooperation’.
During the Forum, Fahim urged the BCIM member countries to import RMGs,

the existing business potentials.

Forum and Business Matching session.
Fahim in his presentation mentioned that the FBCCI is playing an important
role to promote trade and investment in the South Asian Region as one of the

He also highlighted the ways forward for enhancing trade and investment
cooperation within China and the South Asian countries.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between FBCCI and CCPIT- Ningxia was

investment alongside improving information exchange.
