On her recent visit to Tokyo, PM of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina met with the President of JICA, Shinichi Kitaoka. During the meeting, the PM requested for development of a youth training center along with a substantial increase in Japanese investments in Bangladesh, as per Md Nazrul Islam, Secretary of Sheikh Hasina.
With Industrial revolution 4.0 in frame, Bangladesh has the potential to become the next big global market. Entrepreneurship and Information technology are some of the most important pillars for a country’s growth. With the goal of a youth training center, PM’s plans for the national development appear to be youth centric and on the right path.
Bangladesh is eyeing to catch up with the rest of the world and with the growing demand of technology, it envisions for an improvement in this sector with increased investment.
As one of the successful businessmen in Bangladesh, the private sector industry and investment affairs advisor to Sheikh Hasina, Salman F Rahman believes that the potential investments and knowledge transfer from a friendly nation such as Japan, would help Bangladesh in building a network for better future.
A dynamic Bangladeshi businessman, Rahman has been an active contributor to the country’s growth with the local development plans. Treading on similar lines, his recent meetings with the officials from the US, Japan, and Africa could point towards a series of initiatives that are in bound for the improved quotient of research investments and infrastructure development with the onset of the Industrial revolution 4.0.
Given the current demographic dividend, the country could make the most of the opportunity by training and improving the skill set for a potential boost in the economy. All of these efforts are followed on the lines of Awami League Government’s election manifesto.
All these initiatives are in sync with the Prime Minister’s agenda for comprehensive development of Bangladeshi citizens. With addition of new concepts such as entrepreneurship, solar and wind energy Information technology, the country could take a step closer towards Vision 2041 – the prolonged dream of Bangladesh. That said, the series of meetings held by Hasina and her advisors could play an essential part in attracting investments to the country.
