Abstract: The study is focus on the sector wise investment of Chinese companies in Bangladesh. Here we try to present the statistical data and the sector wise entry mode of FDI which is preferred by the most of the Chinese companies and also try to determine the most to the least investment areas. We also identifies the areas where Chinese companies has the potentiality to invest here and to take the opportunities that offered by the Bangladeshi govt. rather than other countries. Flourishing sector wise FDI depends on market structure, geographical position, affiliation with the host country. Most of the Chinese firm prefers wholly own subsidiaries entry mode for investing Bangladesh because they try to adopt the host country's market strategies as well as to compete with local and foreign companies in Bangladesh. In case of enlarge market structure a number of Chinese companies prefer to work with joint venture.
