Govt continues to take steps for development of stock markets: Mannan


Sept 20, 2017 (BSS)-The government will take steps to remove the legal barriers that are hampering the development of the country’s share markets, said state minister for finance and planning MA Mannan.

“The government will continue to extend cooperation for further development of stock markets,” he said while speaking at a workshop on ‘Financial Literacy’ here today.

Bangladesh Merchant Bankers’ Association (BMBA) organized the workshop in cooperation of Capital Market Journalists Forum (CMJF).

CMJF president Sayedur Rahman presided over the opening session. Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission chairman Dr M Khairul Hossain attended it as special guest.

MA Mannan said stock market stakeholders have been working with BSEC to make the stock markets dynamic and stable. The government is providing legal assistances, he added.

Khairul Hossain said awareness must be created among the investors for a healthy stock market. If the investors are not aware, implementation of reform programmes will not be possible, he added.
