The British Business Group (BBG), Bangladesh has formally been relaunched at an event at the residence of the British High Commissioner in Dhaka, reports UNB.

"For over 13 years the BBG has been a strong partner in Bangladesh for the British Government and a responsible and respected voice within the business community," British High Commissioner Alison Blake said in a message on Monday.

On Sunday evening, Alison Blake introduced the seven members of the new Board of Trustees of the BBG to government and business stakeholders from across Bangladesh.

The newly elected Chairman of the BBG, Francois de Maricourt, Chief Executive Officer of the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited in Bangladesh since 2014, spoke of his vision for the British Business Group and its future role.

BBG's primary focus will be striving to improve the business environment for British companies that operate in Bangladesh.

To this end, the BBG will organise and support networking sessions and promote the sharing of knowledge and best practice between government and private sector.

Its members will interact in areas of mutual interest and be a bridge for greater UK-Bangladesh collaboration on the commercial stage.
