The securities regulator on Tuesday urged Japanese investors and non-resident Bangladeshis to invest in Bangladesh, considering the country's prospects.
Prof. Shibli Rubayat Ul Islam, chairman of Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC), made the urge at an investment flash mob jointly organised by the BSEC and Bangladesh Investment Development Authority (BIDA).
Salman F Rahman, private industry and investment adviser to the prime minister, virtually attended the programme as the chief guest, according to a press release.
The BSEC chairman also virtually joined the programme held at Tokyo. He presented a paper titled "Years of Bangladesh: The Rise of Bengal Tiger".
In his speech, he highlighted the prospects of the country's human and natural resources and the contribution of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to the development of Bangladesh.
BIDA's Executive Chairman Lokman Hossain Miah shed light on the country's export processing zones and industrial areas.
He also urged Japanese investors to come forward with fresh investments.
Salman F Rahman said Japanese investors would face no obstacles while investing in Bangladesh.
