The phrase “the untold story” about Bangladesh was repeated a few times at the Inaugural Bangladesh Investment Summit held on 4 Dec 2012. The one day summit was organised by Haymarket (who are also the publishers of AsianInvestor and FinanceAsia magazines) and the objective was to “unlock opportunities for Asian Investors.” Many facets of the Bangladesh story were highlighted especially the health of the country’s economy, growth sectors and export potential. These were covered in the first half of the programme. The rest of the day was devoted to discussions on the development of the country’s financial services and capital markets as well as PPP (public and private partnerships) framework. The Closing Address was by HE Mahbub Uz Zaman, the new High Commissioner of Bangladesh in Singapore.
