The study named Comprehensive Private Sector Assessment (PSA) identified agribusiness (food processing), health care, information and communications technology and outsourcing, light engineering, pharmaceuticals, and tourism as most promising industries beyond the RMG for private sector engagement and investment.

This was revealed yesterday as USAID launched the report at American Chamber of Commerce in Bangladesh (AmCham) in presence of visiting USAID Deputy Administrator Bonnie Glick and US Deputy Chief of Mission here JoAnne Wagner, a US Embassy press release said.

The US government through the USAID (US Agency for International Development) conducted the study in a show of bilateral support towards strengthening Bangladesh’s economy through diversification, said the release.

The study examined 16 emerging sectors in total that also includes ceramics, entrepreneurship, leather and leather goods, medical equipment, plastic, renewable energy and energy efficiency, shipbuilding, shrimp and fish, telecommunications and vehicle assembly.
