DHAKA US Ambassador to Bangladesh Earl R Miller will lead a delegation comprising with Bangladeshi business and industry leaders to the Indo-Pacific Business Forum (IPBF) to be held in Thai capital Bangkok on November 4.
The IPBF, supported by the USA, will focus on benefits of partnering with the dynamic US private sector as well as the importance of high standard development, transparency, and the rule of law, said a press release here today.
Miller will highlight opportunities for increasing trade and investment between the USA and Bangladesh, with an emphasis on the most pertinent challenges to growth in the digital economy, energy, and infrastructure development.
