Concept of PIE

Concept of PIE

The Government of Bangladesh considers the Non-resident Bangladeshi and Diaspora as an integral part of the development process of the nation. The country can benefit significantly from their experiences, talents, and investments. The taskforce has determined three ways that the Bangladeshi diaspora can engage in the development of Bangladesh. They are referred to as the “PIE”, P for Philanthropy, I for Investment, and E for Expert Affiliation. The concept of PIE that stands for Philanthropy, Investment, and Expert Affiliation was developed to group all activities in three areas. This will allow Task Force to focus on specific areas and provide the appropriate resources.

The first area is Philanthropy which can be a donation of assets (cash, land, properties etc.). It can be anonymous, by name, by the name of a family member or for a cause. It can be earmarked for a specific location in Bangladesh or be added to a common pool. The Task Force will help by facilitating the effort and making sure all philanthropic contributions are well spent through active supervision.

The second is Investment with financial return. There is a multitude of investment opportunities in Bangladesh. There is various agencies setup to facilitate major Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) or individual or group investment. NRB investors can invest in government-sponsored projects or can engage directly with private business entities. The Task Force can help by recommending the instruments of investments. These instruments will be verified by the Task Force to be valid and profitable.

The third and the final area is Expert Affiliation. This area covers all areas of expertise such as Engineers, Doctors, Academics, Scientists etc. The Task Force can help by connecting these resources to the appropriate entities in Bangladesh who are always looking for experts. The web portal will work as a marketplace to connect the supply and demand side of the spectrum.
