Bangladeshi investors should invest more in Kosovo to expand the south Asian country’s export market in the landlocked nation, Rizwan Rahman, president of Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI).
Increased communication between the private sectors of the two countries is needed now to boost bilateral trade with Kosovo, he said.
He made the call in a meeting with the visiting Deputy Foreign Minister of Kosovo Kreshnik Ahmeti at a hotel in Dhaka, the chamber said in a press release.
Bangladesh established its diplomatic relation with Kosovo in 2018 and the bilateral trade figure stood at only $0.31 million in 2020, which rose to $1.41 million in 2021, Rahman said.
He proposed organizing virtual business-to-business match-making sessions between the two country’s businessmen to know each other and create new opportunities.
“Kosovo can also hire IT professionals, engineers, and skilled workforce from Bangladesh. Garments and pharmaceutical products of Bangladesh also have huge export potential in Kosovo.”
Kosovo is a free market, but to know each other in the reciprocal exchange of business delegation can play a pivotal role, Ahmeti said.
