The USBCCI Business Expo 2023, organized by the U.S. Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce & Industry (USBCCI) in collaboration with the Bangladesh Investment Development Authority (BIDA) and Export Promotion Bureau (EPB), is an influential B2B trade & investment show, conference, and networking event designed to facilitate the expansion of export-ready products from the United States and Bangladesh into international markets. Held on the margins of the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA78), this event serves as a unique platform for fostering economic partnerships, exploring investment opportunities, and strengthening bilateral trade relations between the two nations.
Bangladesh has become a frontier market and one of the world’s economic success stories. Since its freedom in 1971, the nation has made significant progress. It is currently ranked 40th in the world by nominal GDP, according to Goldman Sachs, and is one of the Next 11 rising economies. In 2015, Bangladesh crossed the line into the lower middle-income category.
According to the World Economic Forum, Bangladesh is maintaining a solid economic trajectory and is outpacing other South Asian nations in terms of GDP growth rate, human development achievements, and ranking on the Inclusive economic Index (IDI).
The Government of Bangladesh recognizes the substantial contributions of the private sector and is committed to creating a more suitable investment climate in order to sustain and grow the business community. In 2019 the country became a Top-20 improver of the World Bank’s Doing Business index. Bangladesh is also embracing digital transformation. To enable quick and frictionless G2B service delivery, the country launched an online and interoperable One Stop Service for investor services from numerous agencies. Furthermore, the government’s digital inclusion policy seeks to increase the use of mobile money and other digital payment channels.
Bangladesh, a place of endless investment prospects, continues to demonstrate its resilience as an economy and society. The government looks forward to welcoming additional investors to take advantage of its unrivaled benefits.
