Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has sought US investment in country's different promising sectors such as renewable energy and blue economy.
"We invite US investment in other lucrative sectors as ICT, renewable energy, shipbuilding, automobile, light engineering, agro-processing, blue economy, tourism and knowledge based hi-tech industries are among those," she said.
She was presenting the keynote speech at a business roundtable joining virtually from her palace of residence in the Lotte New York Palace recently.
The Prime Minister hoped that the US-Bangladesh Business Council may continue to play a catalytic role in raising the present annual bilateral trade of US$ 9 billion to higher figures.
She also expressed her expectation that Bangladesh's trade relations can be further strengthened with duty free access and other trade privileges in the US market.
The US-Bangladesh Business Council organized the virtual roundtable titled "Bangladesh Forward: The Frontier for Growth" in honor of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
PM's ICT Adviser Sajeeb Ahmed Wazed spoke at the roundtable while Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen and State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam were present.
The US-Bangladesh Business Council President Nisha Biswal, who moderated the roundtable, made opening remarks.
US-Bangladesh Business Council members and US and Bangladesh Business World leaders also took part in it.
