25 Feb - 26 Feb Bangladesh

Swedish Business delegation to Bangladesh 25-26 February

Headed by Gunnar Oom, State Secretary to the Minister for Trade Dr. Ewa Björling

Bangladesh has been dubbed as one of the ”Next 11” countries by Goldman Sachs. The economic growth has averaged more than 6% over the past decade and looks set to continue on this path. The growth, mainly driven by a booming garments and textile sector, has created opportunities in several areas. Examples of opportunities can be found in the telecom, readymade garments, pharmaceuticals, shipbuilding and cleantech industries. Bangladesh is one of the Asian Development Bank’s prioritized markets for funding and enjoys duty free market access to the European Union within the “Everything but Arms” scheme.

  • Telecom: Projected growth in the number of mobile subscribers from 45 million in 2008 to 160 million in 2014

  • Shipyards: Bangladesh is developing as a major hub for shipbuilding, with more than 200 shipbuilding and ship repair companies present in the country

  • Textile: Bangladesh ranks as the world’s 8th largest textile exporter, exporting textiles worth more than 12 billion USD per year

  • IT: Bangladesh has 15 000 IT-professionals and has been ranked as one of the top 30 IT-sourcing destinations in the world
