Staff Correspondent: Japan Ambassador to Bangladesh Ito Naoki said the world will see a new Bangladesh by the year 2025 as the scenario of Bangladesh in all development indices will be changed within the next five years.
He expressed this optimism during a meeting with Bashundhara Group Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir at the latter’s residence in Bashundhara residential area
Naoki said Bangladesh will attain its place in the developed world after the Third Terminal of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, Matarbari sea port project and Metrorail project are implemented. Especially, Matarbari will be a ‘second Singapore’ while sea port connectivity will reach a new height, he said, adding the development in private sector centering these government projects is also a great achievement for Bangladesh.
The Japan envoy also said Japanese Economic Zone is being built on 1,000 acres of land in Araihazar Upazila of Narayanganj. Several large Japanese industrial groups will invest in that zone.
“Bangladesh has also shown tremendous success in reviving the economy despite massive setbacks from the coronavirus pandemic. The leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina deserves true admiration in this regard. Not only the economic recovery, many infrastructure developments under Hasina leadership are becoming visible and gradually changing the face of Bangladesh,” Naoki added.
