A Korea desk has been launched by Woori Bank at its branch in Dhaka, Bangladesh, said the bank on Wednesday.
The desk has been opened with a view to helping South Korean companies to extend business in the country, reports The Korea Herald.
Through the service desk, the lender will provide useful market information, including local financial regulations, along with special offers like hotel reservations and airport pickup for customers on business trips to Bangladesh. Also, the officials will conduct financial counseling programs targeting those who are planning to form a venture in the country.
"Bangladesh has the 8th largest population in the world, with its economic growth being on rise by some 6 percent each year since 2010. Woori Bank set up a Korea desk in Bangladesh in a bid to support Korean companies seeking business opportunities in the nation. We will continue to ramp up support programs to aid the their overseas expansion," a bank official said.
The bank currently operates a total of eight Bangladesh-based operations, including the one in Dhaka established in 1996, the first Korean branch office in the country.
