UK honours Bangladeshi businessman

Waliur Rahman Bhuiyan

Waliur Rahman Bhuiyan, one of the country's top businesspersons and managing director of BOC Bangladesh Ltd, has been appointed honorary officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE).
British High Commissioner Anwar Choudhury, on behalf of the British Queen, gave him the appointment in recognition of his contribution to strengthening UK-Bangladesh business relations, said a British High Commission news release yesterday.
BOC was one of the first UK companies to invest in Bangladesh in the 1950s to manufacture and supply industrial and medical gases.
While presenting the honorary award, the British high commissioner said Waliur Bhuiyan has been a magnificent ambassador for Bangladesh, Britain and the business community.
“Being one of the first UK investors to enter Bangladesh market, BOC and Waliur Bhuiyan have made a substantial contribution commercially and socially and the company remains as a responsible investor,” he added.
