Q.

Some time back there were big news items about leading Indian industrial houses planning huge investments in Bangladesh. But slowly they have withdrawn from this. Is it the awareness that Banglasdesh is not the ideal place to invest their money? Your views?

Currently the same debate is going on in India after Mrs.Seikh Hassina requested Indian business men to put their money in Bangaladesh.But a business man never puts his money for charity.With the kind of Islamic fundamentalists n north east India terrorists moving there,it would be unwise on the part of any Indian business men to make any investment there.Mrs.Hassina is a very good leader n India friendly ,but unfortunately all Bangladeshis r not.

Well. That was before the present government of Hasina Wazed came into power in BD. The former government and PM were totally hostile to India and their party is still hostile towards India. That is one part of the story. Other part is Indian government attitude towards the former PM and her government. India was not less hostile. So quite naturally, all the proposals put forward by the Indian Industrialists were either rejected or no decisions have been taken under one pretext or other. Fortunately, there is a conducive environment now in BD towards India. However, it looks like the businessmen are hesitant in view of ever changing political scenario in BD. We can say that the opportunities are definitely under utilized by India in all our neighborhood. We definitely have to go a long way as far as International diplomacy is concerned.

Reports are contradictory.
Bangladesh didn't like terms and conditions forwarded by TATA.
TATA said we are for business, not for charity.
I think, any business will fail in any land unless the human face of it is transparent.
