Japanese investors keen to invest in Bangladesh: envoy
Japanese investors have close eyes on Bangladeshi companies and they are keen to invest in building manufacturing industries here.

Outgoing Japanese Ambassador to Bangladesh Masato Watanabe came up with the remarks when he made a farewell call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her office on Tuesday.

Prime Minister's Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters after the meeting, reports UNB.

The envoy said Japan will continue its development assistance to Bangladesh in various sectors as the island nation is already providing 600 billion Yen for different mega projects.

The Ambassador focused more on economic ties between the two countries and laid emphasis on advancing that further.

Referring to Gulshan café terror attack in July last year, Masato Watanabe termed it a tragic incident.

In reply, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said her government will ensure all-out security in all the development projects.

She termed the café attack a very painful incident and said her government conducted a countrywide anti-terrorism campaign involving teachers, guardians, students, imams of mosques and other professionals to create mass awareness against terrorism and militancy.  “It has yielded a positive response.”

The Prime Minister said Bangladesh considers Japan as its great friend which always extends its support to Bangladesh.

She particularly mentioned the great contribution of Japan towards rebuilding the war-ravaged Bangladesh after its Liberation War.

Hasina mentioned that her government has acquired 1,000 acres of land in Araihazar upazila of Narayanganj to set up an economic zone there for Japanese investors.
