Message From The President – FICCI

Welcome to the website of Foreign investors’ chambers of commerce and industry (FICCI). It is my pleasure to talking to you through this website message. FICCI, as a premier body of foreign investors, remains focused in attending issues of interest to its members and key stakeholders. FICCI is affiliated with the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FBCCI) as an ‘A’ class Chamber and is a founder member of Bangladesh chapter of the Paris based International Chamber of Commerce-Bangladesh (ICC-B). The Chamber maintains regular communications with the International Trade Center (ITC), Geneva and the World Trade Organization (WTO), Paris. Unlike other bilateral foreign chambers in Bangladesh, FICCI is the only chamber in country, which welcomes to join any foreign investors regardless of their state of origin.

FICCI is here to extend full support to the Government in promoting FDI. FICCI has been providing with National Budget Proposals to the government regularly not only to improve its revenue collection, but also make business friendly atmosphere for doing business in Bangladesh. The Chamber, as always, plays an important role as facilitator in promoting FDI. It provides a forum for the foreign investors to interact with each other, and helps build confidence among the existing investors on the seriousness of the Government to effectively implement policies and commitments. The Chamber will continue its participation in all activities aimed at attracting foreign investment in the country with relevant stakeholders. We look forward to constructive partnership with all the stakeholders, as we believe, Bangladesh offers great opportunity for growth and development. If appropriately engaged, the Chamber and its members have the capacity and the capability to contribute significantly in raising the level of FDI to Bangladesh despite these challenging times.

Thank you & Regards,
Shehzad Munim
Foreign Investors’ Chamber of Commerce & Industry
