Bangladesh is a land of opportunity: Dutch investors share experience in the Investment Seminar on Bangladesh in the Netherlands.

Bangladesh is a land of opportunity and enthusiasm. This was the recurrent theme that was echoed by a good number of Dutch investors in an investment seminar held in The Hague yesterday (28 Jan 2015).

Bangladesh Embassy in The Hague hosted a seminar titled: “Bangladesh: Opportunities and Best Practices” organized in collaboration with Nyenrode University of the Netherlands.Untitled-1

Dutch investors were unanimous in their appreciation for the entrepreneurial spirit and high level of enthusiasm and commitment they happily witnessed in the people of Bangladesh. The investors, it seems, anchored their attention to Bangladesh as a “land of untapped potential with huge market size of its own.”

According to them, Bangladesh is slowly but surely emerging as the gateway to South Asia given its geostrategic location with both China and India on either side of her border.

Mr. Andre Nijhof of Nyenrode acted as the moderator of a lively panel discussion. Mr. Peter Van Bergen, proprietor of Budgetview and Impel IT solutions highlighted that he found the commitment of the people of Bangladesh as highly praiseworthy. Mr. Vicenta Ariza, representative of Maruboshi Europe BV in Bangladesh was very candid to say that he found “commitment” and “enthusiasm” of people of Bangladesh unparallel and his company would like to continue business with Bangladesh in the long run.


Professor Desiree, Associate Dean of Degree Programs at Nyenrode University reaffirmed their commitment to continue its partnership with Bangladesh as a country, in her words “represents the future of Asia”. Mr. Rene Beerepoot of RVO made a presentation on Dutch assistance for firms to expand their business in Bangladesh.

Overall mood of the audience was highly in favor of more investment and business with Bangladesh. Dutch investors in Information Technology, Logistics, waste management, water management, business consultancy etc participated in the event. Besides the business community, representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, CBI, RVO, PUM, Schiphol Airport, BangladeshNext have also attended the seminar.
