Urge to withdraw Bangladesh visit ban of Japanese
Commerce Minister Tofael Ahmed urged Japan government to withdraw the ban of Japanese visit to Bangladesh.
He said, Japan is a very close friend of Bangladesh. Both the countries have long term commercial and economical relation. This relation will strengthen in the coming days.
The minister made this urge while holding bilateral discussion with Japan’s Parliamentary Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Yao Hori at a hotel in Tokyo on Monday.
Tofael Ahmed said, there is no logical reason for sustaining the visit ban and Bangladesh will be very happy if Japan government takes prompt action.
He said, Bangladesh is a very suitable and profitable place. Japanese investors will be benefitted if they invest in the 100 special economic zones declared by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Bangladesh government is paying all out cooperation in this regard.
The minister said, the investors can be benefitted by exporting the products after producing those at a cheaper rate. The government is offering special facilities to the investors. From here the investors can invest cent percent and make their invested money return with the profit. The government has preserved the interest of the investors by formulating law.
The Commerce Minister urged the Japanese Vice Minister to take initiatives for investing in Bangladesh by the Japanese investors.
He also proposed for holding the next fourth regular ‘Public-Private Economic Dialogue’ between Bangladesh and Japan in Dhaka.
Ambassador of Bangladesh appointed in Japan, FBCCI president Shafiul Islam Mohiuddin, BGMEA president Md. Siddiqur Rahman, Commerce ministry additional secretary and DTO Md. Obaidul Azam and members of business delegation were present during the occasion.
