DHAKA, June 4, 2018 (BSS) – The Cabinet today constituted a committee,
headed by Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), asking to
further scrutinise the draft of the proposed Bangladesh Tariff Commission
(Amendment) Act, 2018.
The decision was taken in the weekly meeting of the cabinet held at PMO
with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair.
Ministry of commerce placed the draft in the weekly cabinet meeting for
approval, but the cabinet after threadbare discussion returned it back with
proposal for further revision, Cabinet Secretary Md. Shafiul Alam said.
The six-member committee will be comprised of the secretaries of finance,
commerce and industries ministries, chairman of National Board of Revenue
(NBR) and chairman of the Bangladesh Tariff Commission, who will also act as
the secretary of the committee, Shafiul Alam said.
