Bangladesh-Netherlands Investment Summit, 8 and 9 December 2020

On 8 and 9 December, a two-day Bangladesh-Netherlands Investment Summit will be held to mobilize potential Dutch entrepreneurs, innovators, and small and medium-sized enterprises to explore unique investment opportunities in three main sectors: Agriculture, Food, Light Engineering, and Water and Maritime.

CEO, Md. Masudul Hassan and Managing Director & CFO, Samira Islam Resmi of Agribusiness Education and Research International will also get an invitation to attend the summit by Bangladeshi Embassy in the Netherlands. 

Anyone interested can watch the (virtual) summit proceedings that will be live-streamed from the Bangladesh Embassy in the Netherlands’ Facebook page (facebook.com/bangladeshembassyTheHague) as also the pages of the Bangladeshi partners simultaneously.

The (virtual) summit proceedings will be live-streamed and also will be shared from the agribusiness Education and Research International  Facebook page and LinkedIn and Twitter also.

The virtual summit is being organized by the Bangladeshi Embassy in the Netherlands in collaboration with the Dutch Government.

In this company, two leading investment advisory companies — LightCastle Partners (Dhaka) and Larive International (Amsterdam) — are working with the embassy.

Together with Larive-LightCastle, in a series of three webinars on 8 and 9 December 2020, the Embassy is inviting business leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators, and policymakers from the Netherlands and Bangladesh to present opportunities and recognize the relevant scope for trade and investment participation between Dutch and Bangladeshi companies.

Bangladesh’s leadership chambers, industry organizations, and agencies, including BGMEA, DCCI, MCCI, CCCI, BIDA, BEZA, BEPZA, are linked to the embassy’s initiative, the Bangladesh Embassy in the Netherlands said in a press release.

Bangladesh is becoming a South Asian investment center for Europe with its emerging EEZs. It is definitely a timely and commendable initiative by the Embassy to initiate such a confluence summit to put both sides closer together in an attempt to harness the two nations’ untapped potential.

The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), the leading Dutch government agency, is also a Summit member. As far as the sectors are of concern to the Dutch side, they are economically important for Bangladesh.

Unlike conventionally organized business or investment seminars or B-to-B meetings, the event will bring a set of three sector-specific, interactive webinars where the interested Dutch entrepreneurs will engage with sector-specific panelists from Bangladesh and the Netherlands to assess ways to form a long-term collaboration with credible private sector partners in Bangladesh. 

Anyone interested can watch the (virtual) summit proceedings that will be live-streamed from the Bangladesh Embassy in the Netherlands’ Facebook page (facebook.com/bangladeshembassyTheHague) as also the pages of the Bangladeshi partners simultaneously.

Following the investment webinars, on December 10, the Embassy and LightCastle Partners, and LaRive would be launching a first-ever, illustrative study on Dutch-Bangladesh economic engagements to date.

Unlike conventionally organized business or investment seminars or B-to-B meetings, the event will put together a series of three sector-specific, interactive webinars in which interested Dutch entrepreneurs will work with sector-specific panelists from Bangladesh and the Netherlands to evaluate ways to develop a long-term partnership with reputable Bangladeshi private sector partners. Anyone interested can watch the (virtual) summit proceedings that will be broadcast simultaneously from the Bangladesh Embassy on the Facebook page of the Netherlands (facebook.com/bangladeshembassyTheHague), as well as from the pages of the Bangladeshi partners.

The Embassy and Light Castle Partners and LaRive will launch a first-ever, illustrative report on Dutch-Bangladesh economic commitments to date, following the investment webinars, on December 10.

The study would highlight important achievements in different economic fields, as potential areas of collaboration between the private sectors of Bangladesh and the Netherlands would also be shared.

Bangladesh has enjoyed seamless political relations and economic interaction with the Netherlands over the past five decades. Beyond ODA, through Dutch expertise, creativity, technical products, and solutions within global supply chains, there is now a growing potential for Dutch participation in various fields in Bangladesh.

Sheikh Hasina, the Prime Minister, paid a visit to the Netherlands in 2015. The Netherlands is the fourth largest country of origin for foreign direct investment in Bangladesh and the seventh-largest export destination for Bangladeshi goods in Europe. In 2019-20, exports to the Netherlands from Bangladesh amounted to about EUR 1.25 billion.
