Message from the Ambassador

 

H.E.-Abu-Jafar

Dear Visitors,

 

I welcome you all to the website of the Embassy of Bangladesh. We hope you will find it useful to learn about Bangladesh, its people and culture; its potential in trade, tourism and investment; and its relations with the UAE besides the information related with various services we render.

Bangladesh is a land of natural beauty with the longest sea beach in Cox’s Bazar district, the largest mangrove forest in the world known as the Sundarbans and lash green countryside. Its tourism is hardly exploited and there exists tremendous potentials in this sector. For foreign investors, the main attractions in Bangladesh are various fiscal and tax incentives, a large pool of low cost workforce, large domestic market of over 160 million people with a growing middle class and preferential export opportunities (as an LDC) under EU GSP and bilateral trade agreements. Ready-made Garments, Leather & leather goods, Pharmaceuticals, Agro-processing, Light as well as heavy engineering, Automobile, Physical Infrastructure, IT and Business Process Outsourcing are few lucrative sectors of investment. Our website will provide the visitors some useful links to know more about these.

The website will also provide our Community in the UAE and foreigners with detailed guidelines on consular matters, requirements for visa and procedure for recruiting Bangladeshi workforce in addition to the availability of various downloadable forms. Visitors will also find in the website contact details of the Embassy and its officials. I call upon every Bangladesh national living in the UAE to send his/her professional and contact information for Embassy’s data base.

I look forward to receiving your quarries, suggestions and comments for further improvement of this website.
