Bangladesh, with more than 160 million population, now has wonderful economic situation, whose economic growth rate has remained at above 6% for ten years in a row. In 2016, Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Bangladesh, and brought the Belt & Road Initiative there. XCMG highly cherishes the opportunities brought by the Belt & Road Initiative to China’s construction machinery in Bangladesh, responding quickly to it. In the past two years, XCMG has exported rotary drills, crawler cranes, road rollers and levelers, etc. Joining hands with Bangladesh people, XCMG helped boost local economic growth.

 

Relying on the exceptional performance, XCMG products are applied in a number of local projects, including Padma Bridge, the project representing Bangladesh-China friendship and its connection line. The Bridge stretches 6km and functions as one of the most important channels for Pan-Asian Railway that links China to Southeastern Asia, thus gaining the nickname of Bridge of Dreams. The rotary drills of XCMG worked continuously on the construction site, contributing to the progress and quality of the project.

 

XCMG equipment was also used in the Tunnel Project under Karnaphuli River, another key project in the country. It is the most important transport infrastructure project in Chittagong, the largest port in Bangladesh. XCMG truck crane, loader and concrete mixer made wonderful performance in this project.

 While boosting local economic growth, XCMG is also active in the charity programs in Bangladesh. In 2016, XCMG launched the ceremony to issue its global scholarship in Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology in Dhaka, the capital city. Employees of XCMG, after witnessing many local students quitting schools due to financial difficulties, reported what they saw to XCMG headquarters in China. XCMG immediately decided to include charity programs into Blue Dream Charity Foundation Program. It provides precision donations to students majoring in technology and machinery. With spirit of social responsibility and donations to local education, XCMG has received extensive praise from local people and leaders/students of the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.
