Since its establishment in Bangladesh in 1910, British American Tobacco (BAT) has always been moving forward with the purpose of bringing positive change for one and all. BAT has made itself deeply rooted in Bangladesh since the time it commenced operations in the country. Not only does BAT Bangladesh help to develop dynamic professionals who are able to take on leadership roles anywhere in the world, it also engages in the best business practices while adopting the latest technology. The Company is the highest taxpayer to the National Exchequer, which uses the funds for infrastructure development and service provision. BAT Bangladesh s various community development initiatives play a part in enhancing the livelihood of countless individuals. Furthermore, the Company is renowned for practicing best corporate governance. As a result the Company achieved four awards from various credible organisations both in the national and international stage. As you turn these pages, the commitment and dedicated efforts of BAT Bangladesh will become clear to you. Like Bangladesh, the Company has faced its share of challenges but has endured the trials and tribulations and moved forward. Here s hoping that BAT Bangladesh will stay in the course for many more years to come and will forever be a partner in progress. PARTNERING FOR PROGRESS

The presence of British American Tobacco in this part of the world can be traced back to 1910. Beginning the journey as Imperial Tobacco 104 years ago, the Company set up its first sales depot at Armanitola in Dhaka. After the partition of India in 1947, Pakistan Tobacco Company was established in 1949. The first factory in Bangladesh (the then East Pakistan) was set up in 1949 at Fauzdarhat in Chittagong. In 1965, the second factory of Pakistan Tobacco Company went into production in Mohakhali, Dhaka. It became Bangladesh Tobacco Company Limited in 1972 immediately after Bangladesh's independence. In 1998, the Company changed its name and identity to British American Tobacco Bangladesh (BAT Bangladesh) aligning the corporate identity with other operating companies in the British American Tobacco Group. BAT Bangladesh is a part of BAT plc, the renowned international tobacco group, with brands sold in 180 markets around the world. We make high quality tobacco products for the diverse preferences of consumers, spanning the business 'from crop to consumer', and we are committed to embedding the principles of corporate social responsibility Group wide.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
