Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE) Chairman, Dr. Hafiz Muhammad Hasan Babu, announced his intention to attract Japanese investments to the stock market in the near future.
He made these remarks during a budget-related press conference held at a hotel in the capital city on Tuesday (June 6). Dr. Hasan emphasized the importance of actions rather than mere words, expressing his desire to demonstrate progress through tangible outcomes. He shared his numerous aspirations for the DSE and emphasized the need for collaboration to realize people’s dreams. This collaboration would require not only the government’s support but also the assistance of journalists.
Furthermore, Dr. Hasan mentioned the need to provide uninterrupted income from bonds, as the bond market is currently facing obstacles, partly due to taxes. He expressed the desire for a comprehensive evaluation of taxes as a final measure to ensure stability. Dr. Hasan also highlighted the importance of reducing the corporate tax rate for listed and non-listed companies by 10% compared to the dividend tax rate. Additionally, he proposed reducing the VAT rate from 15% to 10%.
Dr. Hasan reassured that despite any disappointment surrounding the budget, there is a strong willingness to take proactive steps in the stock market. These steps aim to restore people’s confidence in the market. The press conference was attended by Rubaba Dowla, the Independent Director of Dhaka Stock Exchange, and Professor Abdullah Al Mamun, among other officials from DSE.
