Believing in the growth opportunities of Bangladesh MasterCard appointed a strong team for the promotion of its products.
SINGAPORE – MasterCard announced the appointment of Syed Mohammad Kamal as country manager for Bangladesh and Mohammad Anwar Hossain as director, business development, in a move to reaffirm its commitment to South Asia as it sets to launch a local representative office mid-year in the country’s capital, Dhaka.
The decision to build a stronger presence locally has come about in part to the rapid development and industrialization the country has been seeing over the last few years and the promise of further growth which could be achieved through a more robust electronic banking and payments system.
Vicky Bindra, President, MasterCard Worldwide, Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa, said: “There are tremendous growth opportunities in Bangladesh. MasterCard has always believed that electronic payments can play a big role in fuelling sustainable economic growth and we aim to work closely with our partners and regulators to help shape the payments industry in Bangladesh. The appointment of an in-market team, who bring with them a wealth of experience and first-hand knowledge, reaffirms our deep commitment to the market.”
