Ever since the independence of Bangladesh, Japanese companies have been doing business in Bangladesh in various sectors, including garments, IT, infrastructure etc. Japan has been contributing to these sectors with high quality and constantly improving technology to help the country become a developing nation. For example, Japan International Cooperation Agency has made huge investments in Bangladesh's infrastructure, agriculture, health sector and other vital fields.

Japan has also emerged as Bangladesh's largest lender in terms of aid disbursement. In 2012, Japan became the largest bilateral donor for Bangladesh. Japan and Bangladesh have maintained a very healthy bilateral relationship for several decades now and the bond is only getting stronger day by day.

With a view to increase investment opportunities for Japanese companies and to streamline the entire process of entering different markets in Bangladesh, 'Japan Desk' has been launched by the Chittagong Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI). The desk has been set up in a joint initiative of the Chittagong Chamber of Commerce and Industries (CCCI), Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) and Japan-Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JBCCI). Legal Counsel, a renowned Bangladesh Law firm is its operational partner and New Vision being its knowledge partner. At this desk, any Japanese investment company can ask for any kind of support in terms of trade and investment in Bangladesh. This desk will provide investment data and free of cost initial consultation through its partners. For detailed services, the service provider partners will charge a discounted and mutually agreeable fee from the service recipient directly.

While the Japan Desk is physically located in Chattogram, it is committed to provide services all across Bangladesh for the existing and potential Japanese inventors.
