Shahwar Nizam Quoted in Asia Business Law Journal Article on Bangladesh Business Opportunities

Shahwar Nizam, DFDL Partner and Bangladesh Managing Director, was recently quoted in the Asia Business Law Journal article ‘Bangladesh: Ready for Business’.

This article discusses the current investment climate in Bangladesh along with associated opportunities, challenges and developments in the pipeline.

Shahwar, along will other key experts, offered his insights and thoughts on why Bangladesh is becoming an attractive hub for foreign direct investment (“FDI”).

He sees the country equipped with a host of advantages in terms of being able to attract significant levels of inward investment such as its political stability having had a functioning and effective government for many years, a geo-strategic location between India and China, effective investment protection laws and viable enforcement mechanisms. Nonetheless, he does not shy away from the less salutary issues which need to be urgently addressed. Shahwar talks about remaining challenges such as the lack of coherence and coordination between different government departments and regulatory bodies even where new laws are under discussion. He also highlights the importance of enhancing the country’s legislative framework and current regulatory regime to ensure that Bangladesh continues along its upward economic trajectory and keeps pace with industry and technological trends.
