Greetings from BFTD.

Bangladesh Foundation for Tourism Development is working for the development of National and Regional Tourism. BFTD is organizing Bangladesh's biggest Tourism event BITF (Bangladesh International Tourism Fair (BITF) from August 10th to August 12th, 2017.

Bangladesh is one of the co-hosting countries of ICC World Cup Cricket 2011, Lonely Planet has declared Bangladesh as one of 10 top destinations in 2010 and 2011 they declared top ten best value destinations. We have longest sea beach Cox's Bazar and largest mangrove Sundarban (contesting as seven nature wonder) in the whole world. We have single largest Buddhist monastery, archaeological and religious sites, nature, rivers etc.

Bangladesh is also a very potential outbound market too. Last year Malaysia had highest growth from Bangladesh only- about 90,000 tourists, Thailand received 80,000 +, Singapore 40,000, Nepal 75000+, bhutan also had substantial growth. About 2000 Bangladeshi tourists visit India every day.
