“Bosch is looking at Bangladesh for the last 10-12 months because we found Bangladesh as a country of great opportunity in many fields that Bosch is operating in the world,” V. K. Viswanathan, Managing Director of Bosch Ltd, told an interview Monday.

“Our future plan is to fully utilize the opportunities that Bangladesh market offers, Mr Viswanathan, who is also president of Bosch Group India, said.

The subsidiary, wholly owned by Bosch, will be headquartered in Dhaka and be headed by Ajay Sahney in the capacity of Managing Director of the new company.

“We are looking for a place in Dhaka for headquarter of Bosch Bangladesh. Once we finalise our office, we will put some people for market survey in the big and small cities and ever the rural areas to find out what products we can bring in and how to expand the market etc,” Mr Viswanathan said.

“Bangladesh is a part of Next Eleven (N-11) countries. N-11 countries have a high potential of becoming, along with the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China), the world’s largest economies in the 21st century,” he said.

Bosch sees immense potential in Bangladesh market and will grow significantly by offering high quality products across segments. This confidence is bolstered by the emphasis of Bangladesh government on key infrastructure projects. Bosch will also bring its new product offerings to this market and help the customer make a better choice, he said.
