The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) wants to invest in different sectors of Bangladesh.

Saudi Ambassador in Dhaka Essa Yussef Essa Al Dulaihan expressed the interest during a meeting with Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen at the state guest house Padma on Sunday.

He conveyed the interests of the Saudi public and private investors to invest in different sectors in Bangladesh – particularly mentioning ARAMCO, Acwa Power, Alfanar Group, Engineering Dimension (ED), Red Sea Gateway Terminal (RSGT), Daelim KSA, Aljumairah Group, etc.

The envoy sought cooperation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to help implement the agreements and MOUs signed between Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia in the recent past.

During the meeting, the ambassador apprised the foreign minister of the initiatives to facilitate smooth return of the stranded expatriate Bangladeshis to Saudi Arabia.

Dr Momen expressed his satisfaction on the pace of return of the stranded Bangladeshi citizens to Saudi Arabia, with the help of the Saudi embassy in Dhaka.

He assured the ambassador of all cooperation to take the existing bilateral cooperation forward.

The foreign minister invited Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman to visit Bangladesh in March 2021 to attend the celebration of the birth centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, or in March 2022 to attend the celebration of 50 years of Bangladesh’s independence.

We need to have a sticky for saudi initiatives in BD.....all talk....no actual action...
Correct, their massive investment pledge in Indonesia during his King visit several years ago is just an empty promise. Look like they prefer to invest in non Muslim country like China and India.

They already are...how else otherwise, India's foreign reserve is pilling up amid global economic slowdown/ covid? Per my info SA has parked close to $US 38 Billion there in last 2 month

No, no, SA prefers to invest in Madrassahs in Muslim countries where the teacher Mullahs love to teach their pupils Wahabism, fanaticism and terrorism.

This is how SA starts local squabbles and fitnas, and destroys the social fabrics.

Their foreign policy is bizzare to say the least.

Anyhow whatever.... for the time being we need the manpower sector in SA.

No.... manpower sector....

I have no particular issue with Madrassahs at all. But these educational institutions must be protected from foreign interference.



Saudi Funded Madrasas are like little KSA high commissions, they care little what the government has to say, they pass their own Curriculum and since their funding is from abroad they're insulated from government crack down.




However, If we play it with finesse, we can shut these Madrasas and still keep exporting manpower to KSA, it's all about careful diplomacy and engagement.

Ah when Saudi comes to mind what do I think? Islamic banks, more Islamic banks and tonnes of Saudi funded madrassahs. BD is one of those countries where madrassahs and masjids are dime a dozen.

Apart from that what have these oil rich goons done?
