About 5,250 new job opportunities are expected to be created with an investment of Tk 558 crore in the country’s first hi-tech park–Bangabandhu Hi-Tech City–in Gazipur as plots have
already been allotted to more seven companies to set up their industries in the park.
The companies received their plots for the next 40 years by signing an agreement at a function at the meeting room of Bangladesh Hi-Tech Park Authority (BHTPA) on Monday, a BHTPA press release said, reports BSS.
Bangladesh Hi-Tech Park Authority Managing Director Hosne Ara Begum spoke at the function as the chief guest.
Under the agreement, 20.41 acres of land were allocated to the seven companies. Of those, Data Soft got 2.75 acres of land while Amra Holdings received 3.50 acres, Devnet Limited two acres, Spectrum Engineering Consortium Limited two acres, Media Soft Data System Limited one acre, UY System Limited one acre and SB Tel Enterprise 8.16 acres.
Earlier, on November 28, the SB Tel Enterprise also signed an agreement with Bangladesh Hi-Tech Park Authority.
Addressing the function, Hosne Ara said various programmes, including seminar and road-show in London, have already been taken to attract investment in the country’s hi-tech parks being constructed under the Bangladesh Hi-Tech Park Authority.
Bangabandhu Hi-Tech City being established on 355 acres of land at Kaliakair in Gazipur is a flagship project of the Bangladesh Hi-Tech Park Authority, she said, adding “We hope the high-tech parks or software technology parks will be the centres of software and electronic goods
export”.
