The reasons behind choosing Bangladesh
To find the reason we do a PEST analysis of Bangladesh.
Political Analysis: Bangladesh Government follows foreign investment policies actively. It has passed a number of policies in the budget to attract the foreign investors. The government also set up numerous export processing zones to attract foreign investment. There are no differences between foreign and domestic private investors concerning investment inducements or export and import policies. Inducements for investors include 100% ownership in most sectors, tax holidays, reduced import duties on capital machinery and spares, duty free imports for 100% exporters and tax exemptions. There is also existing legislation which gives the security to the foreign investors. They are: Patent and Design Act of 1911, Patent and Design Rule of 1933, Trademark Act of 1940, Copyright Act of 1999.
Economic Analysis: The economy of Bangladesh is constituted by that of a developing country. Its per capita income in the outgoing fiscal year 2012-2013 is $923 (adjusted by purchasing power parity which is $85 higher than 2011-2012.

They are increasingly aware that Social responsibility can be of direct economic value. Companies can contribute to social and environmental objectives, through integrating Social responsibility as a strategic investment into their core business strategy, management instruments and operations. This is an investment, not a cost, much like quality management. So, business organizations can thereby have an inclusive financial, commercial and social approach, leading to a long term strategy minimizing risks linked to uncertainty.
