British Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce wants to introduce different aspects of Bangladesh to the new generations of British-Bangladeshis through Global Convention of NRB. New generation of Bangladeshis in Britain have a misconception about business scope in Bangladesh for different reasons.
There are multiple reasons behind this misconception, such as poor representation of the country and wrong idea and information obtained from different sources about law and order prevailing in there, if this situation continues there will be a gap between new generations who are growing up in Britain and in Bangladesh. That will be a very difficult to minimise the gape, hereupon, Bangladesh will lose an economical possibilities.
The British Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce wants to create a bridge between new generation o f British Bangladeshis and Bangladesh. Leaders of Chambers said that they were living in outside Bangladesh for their livelihood but their mind always craving for Bangladesh and its development. Their sons and daughters feel the sentiments they possess, but they become apathetic when they see parents don’t get proper respect in their own country.
