Dhaka Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI) and USAID’s Agriculture Value Chains (AVC) Project organized a workshop on “Alternative Financing Options in Agriculture Sector” at DCCI on 7 May, 2017.

Agriculture sector has huge opportunity for financial services for its potential returns.  

DCCI President Abul Kasem Khan said Bangladesh’s agriculture sector is the largest sector contributing to the economy of Bangladesh. Still Bangladesh’s economy is based on our agriculture. Our farmers are basically entrepreneurs, he said. They should have easy access to finance so that can grow and add value to their crops.
