 Chattogram port may draw $7b investment in 3 years

The Chattogram port has the potential to draw around $5 billion to $7 billion in foreign direct investments over the next three years, said Rear Admiral Mohammad Sohail, the newly appointed chairman of Chittagong Port Authority (CPA). With these foreign investments, the port will be able to play a vital role in the economic development of the country in the coming years. Referring to the interests of different foreign port operators to invest in the ongoing and proposed projects of the port, he said many countries were showing interest. The existing depth of the natural channel there is currently 8 metres which will be increased to up to 12 metres through dredging, enabling the port to allow the entry of bigger ships with a capacity to carry over 5,000 TEUs of container. Currently the port can allow ships with a capacity of a maximum of 2,500 TEUs.
