BEZA set to introduce one-stop service

Bangladesh Economic Zones Authority (BEZA) is all set to introduce one-stop services for prospective investors soon to facilitate fast track processing of investments in Bangladesh.

During initial level, BEZA will offer five services – project clearance, visa recommendation, work permit recommendation, import permit and export permit – out of a total 28 approvals required for investment purposes, which will be introduced within one month.

The other services required for investors will be included in the automated web platform in phases, says BEZA in a press release issued yesterday.

Currently, many prospective investors feel discouraged mainly due to lengthy and complex procedures. So, the authorities are going to introduce the service to facilitate fast track services for the investors to help them complete the processes smoothly.

In this regard, Bangladesh Economic Zones Authority Secretary Mohammad Ayub and Chief Executive Officer (E-Service Director) of Business Automation signed the agreements on their behalf at a programme held at BEZA office in Dhaka yesterday.
