Bangladesh foreign investment exceeded $2 billion
According to the Central Bank, most of the FDI came from the United States, South Korea, Australia, Netherlands, India and Japan.
The main sectors that attracted foreign investors were gas and petroleum, textiles, banking, telecoms, power, clothing and processed foods.
Days ago, the Central Bank noted that Bangladesh closed the fiscal year 2015-2016 with a $3.7 billion surplus due to falling oil prices in the international market and food imports.
Another positive indicator was the record achieved by exports, which stood at around 34,2 billion dollars, although the government is planning to grow eight percent in next 12 months to exceed 37 billion. ■
