New office will help accelerate growth in developing markets
In early Dec. 2010, DuPont India opened a new liaison office in Bangladesh as part of the company's strategy to accelerate growth in developing markets. The newly-opened office will help support the needs of local customers in market segments such as agriculture and food, apparel and textiles, paints and construction, graphics and packaging, infrastructure and renewable energy, safety and protection and other growth sectors. The DuPont Bangladesh office opening was announced at a launch event in Dhaka, the country's capital. The event was attended by more than 40 senior government officials, representatives from the U.S. Embassy and the Indian High Commission, and leaders from the country's central bank, local companies and business associations such as the Foreign Investors Chamber of Commerce & Industries (FICCI), India - Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce, American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham), leading multi-national corporations, electronic and print media, distributors and existing and target potential customers.
