Walmart wants to work more closely with Bangladesh

The world-renowned biggest chain shop ‘Walmart’ has expressed interest in working more closely with Bangladesh.

Walmart’s Executive Vice President Andrea Albright expressed the interest during a meeting with Prime Minister's Private Industries and Investment Adviser Salman F Rahman at his Gulshan office in the city on Thursday.

Walmart's Vice President for Global Affairs and Business Diplomacy Paul Dyke, among others, was present at the meeting.
Walmart Delegation expressed their willingness to buy diversified products from Bangladesh.

They noticed that newly formed Awami League government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, is approaching towards greater stability and better economic development.

Salman added that Walmart may work together with the Bangladeshi business entities to include new products like-processed agro food, electronics, pharmaceuticals, packed spices, jute based products and manmade fiber based RMG.
Walmart delegation responded positively.

Salman also informed the delegation that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has instructed all concerned to ensure a safe working environment in all the industries of the country.

Andrea Albright, executive vice president of Walmart, said, “Bangladesh's RMG has a reputation around the world. Walmart has long been involved in the import of clothing from this country. Although the purchase order decreased a little during the corona epidemic and Ukraine-Russia war, I hope it will increase now and will be buying few new products as discussed today”.
