Uniform swapping scale to moderate dollar emergency

The specialists have chosen to set a uniform unfamiliar money conversion scale both for merchants and exporters, in a bid to battle the overall dollar emergency.

From here on out, every one of the banks will set a cost through counsel and unfamiliar monetary forms will change hands in the country at the decent cost. The national bank will screen what is happening consistently.

The choice came at a gathering of Bangladesh Bank with the Association of Bankers Bangladesh (ABB) and the Bangladesh Foreign Exchange Dealers Association (BAFEDA). BB lead representative Fazle Kabir, ABB executive Selim RF Hussain, BAFEDA director Ataur Rahman and different authorities went to the gathering.

Md. Serajul Islam, the representative of BB and its chief, said the incessant offer of dollar will proceed. Bafeda and ABB will fix a trade cost for dollars and all banks will follow the rate while changing out the product income and settlements.

Nonetheless, a broker present at the gathering, said that the drive wouldn’t relieve the predominant emergency. The conversion scale will continue to rise except if the stockpile of greenback to the market is expanded.

“We need to go with sensible choices, rather than controlling the market by holding up the dollar cost. That would be better for the country,” he said.
