Bangladesh, hailed as the next 'tiger economy' of this century, has consistently posted positive economic growth during the last three decades. Resilient, even in the face of the global economic crisis, Bangladesh has continued to post GDP growth averaging 6% year on year for the last 5 years, thanks to a robust manufacturing sector and growing services sector, bolstered by a deep workforce.

With an ambitious growth plan, Bangladesh is targeting growth to increase to 8% by 2015 and then 10% by 2021. To foster the enabling environment for growth, Bangladesh is seeking to make a step change in its investment in infrastructure, rising from 2% to 6% of GDP.

We invite you to take advantage of this opportunity to partner with us and share in the success and benefits of a new era of PPP in a vibrant Bangladesh. We invite you to attend the "PPP Global Investors' Forum: Bangladesh 2012".
