U.S. Department of State

Diplomacy in Action

Remarks at American Chamber of Commerce Event in Bangladesh

Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Economic and Business Affairs
Dhaka, Bangladesh

And will they continue to think of a country with improving child mortality rates, with dramatic reductions in poverty, which is something that the world has recognized in Bangladesh. Or will they think of a tainted brand? Will they think of a country where workers rights or safety codes are ignored and lead to tragedy? That is the inflection point that we see ourselves today.
