Bangladesh Property Show 2013
Bangladeshi Property Developers Offered Their Best Deals in Dubai A spectacular two-day exhibition showcasing Bangladesh’s growing real estate sector was displayed at Crowne Plaza [Former Renaissance Hotel], Muraqqabat, Deira, Dubai, from Friday, September 27 for Bangladesh expatriates and investors
Dubai: A two-day property exhibition displaying a wide range of residential real estate projects in Bangladesh was on offer at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Muraqqabat, Deira, Dubai, from Friday, September 27, 2013, that helped some members of the 1.2 million-strong Non-resident Bangladeshi (NRB) community to choose their dream homes.
Bangladeshi expatriates own more than 15,000 business establishments in the UAE, employing more than 75,000 people. NRBs remit more than $2.8 billion (Dh9.1 billion) a year from the UAE to Bangladesh, according to Bangladesh Bank, the country’s central bank
Investment in Bangladeshi properties has a multiplier effect. Real estate provides the best investment option for NRBs. It not only gives them a secure retirement home, but also offers the best return that money could fetch.
“This is for the first time a Bangladeshi real estate exhibition is taking place at a five-star hotel in the UAE and we are excited about the whole event taking place amid challenging environment,” S. A. Karim, a senior NRB professional said.
“This offers a unique opportunity for Bangladeshi developers who could not display their properties at such a wonderful atmosphere before.”
Investment in Bangladesh real estate sector could not have come at a more opportune time. With property prices under pressure – most developers have reduced prices by 20-30 per cent. Developers in Bangladesh are currently offering heavy discounts on properties. This offers a huge potential for higher return on investment and double the money in a few years’ time.
“The event will also help boost confidence amongst NRBs on Bangladesh property sector where some developers had given a bad name to this important economic sector due to malpractice, delayed delivery schedules,” J. Rashid, a senior insurance executive and a leading member of the Bangladeshi community, says.
“However, the participants of the exhibition are all respected and leading members of the Real Estate and Housing Association of Bangladesh (REHAB) – the national housing association in Bangladesh. Their participation itself will demonstrate the better side of the real estate business of Bangladesh.”
Bangladesh Property Show 2013 is being organised by a group of Bangladeshi Expatriate professionals working in different fields. The objective of the event is to help meet the growing demand for quality housing needs for Bangladeshi expatriates.
Bangladeshi expatriates own more than 10,000 business establishments in the UAE, employing more than 75,000 people. NRBs remit more than $2.5 billion (Dh9.1 billion) a year from the UAE to Bangladesh, according to Bangladesh Bank, the country’s central bank.
Organisers of the exhibition are committed to better business practices and their aim is to help meet certain social and economic needs of the community
Bangladesh Pavilion at the Global Village 2001, 2012 and 2007
One of the shareholders of Pan Asian Exhibition LLC, part of Pan Asian Group, founded Bangladesh Pavilion at the Global Village in 2001, 2002 and 2007 – in his capacity as a community member.
He led a team of Bangladeshi professionals in setting up Bangladesh Pavilion in 2001 under extreme difficult situation. However, the team pulled the month-long exhibition together with resounding success. All the 32 stalls at the Bangladesh Pavilion displayed and sold authentic Bangladeshi products and services.
The same team organised the Bangladesh Pavilion in 2002. Pan Asian Group shareholder also organised Bangladesh Pavilion in 2007 – for the third time. However, due to the political unrest in Bangladesh with the run up to the infamous ‘1/11, 2007’ or January 11, 2007, four containers with Bangladeshi goods were stuck at Chittagong Port and could not be shipped to Dubai for the timely display and sale at the Global Village.
Malaysia Pavilion 2004
One of the shareholders of Pan Asian Group was also approached by the then Malaysian Consul General and Senior Trade Commissioner Mr Mustafa Abdul Aziz to help in organising Malaysian Pavilion in 2004. As a result, the organiser single-handedly organised Malaysian Pavilion that had Petronas Towers as its façade. About 36 stalls displayed Malaysian products and services at the Global Village.
