Ctg EPZ 4th in global ranking
The UK-based Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) magazine ranks Chittagong Export Processing Zone (CEPZ) fourth in best economic potential category and third in the best cost-competitiveness category.
The FDI magazine carried out a survey among the world's 700 economic zones this year and ranked CEPZ as one of the best EPZs.
"FDI magazine has recognised our efforts in only one-and-a-half years of the present government," Executive Chairman of Bangladesh Export Processing Zone Authority (Bepza) Jamil Ahmed Khan to the news agency.
Jamil described this recognition as one of the major achievements of Bepza.
This success clearly manifests that an investment-friendly atmosphere is now prevailing in the country, he said, and hoped that this would help encourage more FDI in Bangladesh.
