Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal said, Germany has proposed to assemble BMW or Mercedes Benz brand cars in Bangladesh. They want to assemble BMW or Mercedes Benz brand cars in our country like Thailand.
He said these to the newsmen after holding a meeting with German business delegation on Monday.
The Finance Minister said, world famous BMW and Mercedes Benz brand cars are being assembled in Thailand. Germany also proposed to assemble the brands in Bangladesh. If that is happened then we will need not to import those brand cars from abroad. These cars can be bought from the country at a cheaper rate.
He said, they want to use our jute in a large scale. It was very hard to manage our jute industry. So the proposal is very good. We said, come in Bangladesh and do business. Jute made materials are being used for decoration in the Mercedes brand cars. Jute materials are used in all the cars available in Germany.
The minister said, discussions were held on GSP facilities so that it will not stop for Bangladeshi commodities in Germany. They have assured that they will help at their best.
