Jul '13
South Korean traders would be requested to import more Bangladeshi products, especially readymade garments, the Korea Importers Association (KOIMA) has said.
During a meeting with the visiting Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) delegation, KOIMA vice chairman Hi-Hyun Kim said the association would request its 8,000 members to import more products from Bangladesh, particularly garments, a DCCI press release said.
The visiting DCCI team also met representatives of the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA). Executive vice president of KOTRA Chang-Heon BAE said KOTRA will cooperate with DCCI members to get the South Korean business partners as a part of their match-making effort. He also assured KOTRA’s support in capacity building of DCCI.
Director for Asia of Korea Chamber of Commerce, Chol Min, said they will encourage their members to increase their businesses with Bangladeshi businessmen. He said Korean investors are very positive about Bangladesh because some of Korean business houses are quite successful in doing businesses in Bangladesh. He showed keen interest to work closely with DCCI, the release said.
DCCI President Md. Sabur Khan said maintaining strong and frequent communication between the businessmen of Bangladesh and South Korea is important for the development of trade. He urged the Korean investors to invest in Bangladesh and importers to import more from Bangladesh.
KOIMA also showed interest to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with DCCI for mutual benefits in terms of future bilateral trade and investment.
