Bangladeshi Business firms started to establish businesses in Hong Kong just three decades ago. Initially only a few companies had registered in Hong Kong. The number has increased a lot during the last two decades. These numbers are increasing day by day. The majority of Bangladeshi companies registered here are from the garments sector. Apart from that, finance, electronics, chemicals, commodities, shipping and trading sectors are also performing well in Hong Kong.
These companies are contributing to a remarkable share in economic development of Hong Kong. Bangladesh imported USD1.45 billion of goods from Hong Kong and exported USD230 million of goods to Hong Kong last year. The above figures shows that, the Bangladeshi business community in Hong Kong is doing quite well and is expanding at a remarkably fast rate. In order to cope with the rapid expansion, the community has considered that this is a high time to form a Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong. Therefore, the Bangladeshi community of Hong Kong has established a Chamber by the name of “Bangladesh Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce Hong Kong Limited.
