The Foreign Minister of Bangladesh Dr. AK Abdul Momen has recently asked Bangladesh missions to remain alert against any conspiracy and project the competitive edge of the garment industry while pointing out that certain quarter has carried out conspiracy to tarnish the image of the readymade garment sector of the country.

He also called upon the missions to prepare to face the post LDC challenges while also gearing up efforts to ensure duty-free access of the country’s products to the global market in the post-LDC period.

Dr. Momen, in an a letter to all the heads of the missions, asked them to hold continuous negotiations with the Governments, policymakers and businesses of the respective countries to extract economic benefit for the country so that the present pace of the economic growth can be sustained.

The missions should be more active in exploring new markets for Bangladeshi products and to attract foreign investments, the letter underlined while adding that the missions should project the benefits and incentives being provided by the Government to the foreign investors.

“The Government has established 100 special economic zones and 28 high-tech parks. The missions can play important role in attracting foreign investments in these areas,” the minister said in his letter.
