This meeting was made possible by Aziz Ahmad, CEO of UTC Associates and Chairman of US Bangladesh Partners. "I look forward to presenting APII to these esteemed individuals from Bangladesh. The focus of the meeting will be to present business opportunities in Bangladesh as well as foreign investment and trading. The Bangladesh GDP growth rate is over 6% with a population over 158 Million. Bangladesh is an untapped opportunity that is now an influx of foreign/domestic investors and global multinational companies. There is large interest in information technology and telecommunications solutions within the Bangladesh delegates and I believe the partnership that exists between UTC and APII brings an excellent solution to the table. Our ability to deliver Cloud solutions, technical support, VOIP, and Disaster recovery within the structure of a cost-effective implementation should make our solution quite advantageous for the business and government leaders," said Mr. Ahmad.

Says Gary Polistena, CEO of Action Products International, "I am honored to be asked to attend such a high level business conference. Bringing UTC Associates on as our consultant was not only to assist us in building our new infrastructure but also to globally grow. Bangladesh is a fast growing resource for technology companies that we have a strong interest in doing business with and possibly looking towards our acquisition process. I would also like to make mention of the New York Business Fair on Thursday from 12pm to 8pm at the NYS Armory. I urge our shareholders to attend this conference and see first-hand Andrew Greig's seminar and presentation of Vizzeco Inc. This seminar should shed light on their business plan, revenues and performance of the company."
