Corporate Affairs & Restructuring including Merger & Acquisitions

In light of the globalization, the way business is conducted in Bangladesh has changed fundamentally. The Government has put much emphasis in developing the Business sector of the Country and thereby offering incentives, tax holiday for new business enterprises. The manifestation of the government has also been proved in the decision of establishing some Economic Zones (EZs) at different parts of the country. Now the Business sector of Bangladesh is developing with the co-operation of the government. The investors are exploring new business opportunities and also forming venture like Joint Venture, Proprietorship, Partnership and Company to carry on new line up of business.
