PV Desk : Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal on Wednesday said the government is expecting a huge investment from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in various sectors including power and energy, especially potential investment and support from the Saudi Aramco.

Kamal said this to the reporters after holding a meeting with the visiting Saudi delegation, led by Saudi Deputy Minister for Labour and Employment Mahir Abdulrahman Algassim, at his ERD office here on Wednesday afternoon.

The Saudi delegation is now in Dhaka to attend the two-day 13th Bangladesh-Saudi Arabia Joint Commission meeting being held in the capital.

He said more power and electricity is needed as the government is setting up some 100 special economic zones and more will come.

“We’re looking forward to the Saudi Aramco to come up here as Aramco is a big name for the KSA. They (Aramco) have already expressed their interest and they want to join and support,” he added.
