Treasury bond trading to start this year: BSEC chairman
Treasury bond trading will start this year. Then the growth of the capital market will increase as well as the contribution to the GDP. Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC) Chairman Professor Shibli Rubayat-Ul-Islam commented that after a few days we will start all kinds of bond trade, then the market will increase by 50pc.
He said these things in the speech of the chief guest at the round table meeting titled ‘Bangladesh Stock Market: Present and Future’ jointly organized by Capital Market Journalists Forum (CMJF) and Bangladesh Merchant Bankers Association (BMBA) at Hotel Westin on Saturday, September 17.
BSEC Chairman said, 18 of our closed companies have already reopened. There is a possibility that these companies will repay their bank loans. Banks have benefited from this. Also, NBRO will benefit as it will get a big tax from here. So we also need the cooperation of NBR.
Shibli Rubayat-Ul-Islam said, if we compare with any other country on various aspects of the economy, then we must look at the overall condition of that country first. If we talk about the derivative market, then people have to look at it, but in our country, nobody has a good idea about the derivative market.
He said, our mutual funds recent decisions are very good, they are also starting to pay dividends. If not, they are being called and visited. Not only Bangladeshi products but foreign products will be traded in the commodity exchange. The farmer’s paddy will be bought and sold here before it is harvested. If we go to buy its software, then it will take about 100 to 150 crore taka, and if we want to buy better software, then it will take 400 crore taka. We are working on such big projects, the market size will increase if they start soon.
He also said that no matter how much support is given to the capital market, the country’s taxes will increase. If good companies are brought here, they will not have the opportunity to evade taxes. We are thinking of working on a short sale. Prior, to the launch of CCBL, we are thinking of launching a short sale. Because short sale requires the development of trading capacity.
The Chairman of BSEC said that the road shows that we have done are basically going on the instructions of the Prime Minister. We are starting to reap the benefits of this. We will also do road shows in some countries. Basically, when we brand our products abroad through road shows, they become interested in investing here, because high-level government policymakers are present with us in road shows. Foreigners are interested in their beautiful presentation.
President of Capital Market Journalist Forum (CMJF) Ziaur Rahman presided over the event, as President of Bangladesh Merchant Bankers Association (BMBA). Chhaydur Rahman.
