The China-Bangladesh Investment Forum
This forum will bring together 300 Chinese and Bangladeshi policymakers, business executives and investors to discuss the growing opportunities between the two countries.
Held in Beijing, and simultaneously interpreted in English and Chinese, participants will have a valuable chance to learn more about the business environment in Bangladesh and the potential areas for cooperation.
Bangladesh’s economic indicators tell an impressive story. Its GDP expanded by 7.05% in 2016, inflation and exchange rates have been under control, and exports are growing while the trade deficit is narrowing. Already a lower middle-income country, the government aims to become an upper-middle income country by 2021 and a developed country by 2041.
The opportunities for China to benefit from Bangladesh’s economic rise is great. China is the country’s largest trading partner with bilateral trade exceeding $10bn in 2015-2016. On the reverse, Bangladesh is China’s third largest trade partner in South Asia. Enhancing the potential of these two strategic partners is the prospect of a Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar (BCIM) Economic Corridor and China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
The successful implementation of these strategies will elevate Bangladesh’s geographical advantage in South Asia and enhance economic activity between the two countries for decades to come.
