Bangladesh a growing trade partner for Sweden in South Asia: Ambassador

The Embassy of Sweden in Dhaka and Business Sweden have jointly launched the “Sweden-Bangladesh Business Guide 2024-2025”, reports UNB.

The launch was a part of Sweden’s long-term ambition to strengthen and expand the business and trade relationship between Sweden and Bangladesh.

State Minister for Finance, Waseqa Ayesha Khan, attended the event held on Monday as the chief guest.

Alexandra Berg von Linde said that Bangladesh is a growing trade partner for Sweden in South Asia.

"Over 50 Swedish companies are already present here," she said.

One of the main objectives of the Swedish government is to strengthen Sweden’s position as a prioritized partner for green and digital transition, said the Ambassador.

"This will also continue to remain highly prioritized in the future bilateral trade relations between our two nations,” she said.

The Sweden-Bangladesh Business Guide 2024-2025 aims at supporting both Swedish and Bangladeshi companies in doing business between the two countries.

The guide provides information about Swedish business priorities in Bangladesh, the overarching support systems and relevant entry points to doing business, as well as the latest business-profiles and product-lines of Swedish companies operating in the country.

For incoming Swedish companies, the business guide introduces Bangladesh as a new investment destination and potential market for cutting-edge Swedish products and services.

During the event the Trade and Investment Commissioner of Sweden to India, Cecilia Oskarsson, also made digital remarks about the importance of the growing business relationship between Sweden and Bangladesh.

The event was held at the embassy premises with representatives from the Swedish business community, government representatives from both Sweden and Bangladesh, relevant business chambers, the diplomatic community, and other key stakeholders.

In line with the sustainable and inclusive ambition of Sweden, the Sweden-Bangladesh Business Guide is distributed mainly digitally, and can be accessed through the Swedish Embassy’s website.
