Former central bank Governor Dr Salehuddin Ahmed has urged the concerned authorities to make public all the initiatives and operations undertaken in the banking and financial sector of the country.

He also opined that in order to restore 'good governance' in the banking sector, there is a need to take proper decisions and thus implement those visibly in a speedy manner.

Speaking on the occasion, the planning minister expressed his hope that Bangladesh would be able to tackle the situation arising from the current global economic condition without incurring any big loss.

"The global economic shock has also affected Bangladesh while bigger economies have also fallen into crisis. Being a comparatively smaller economy, Bangladesh has been trying to keep its momentum braving the adverse global condition. Hopefully, we'll be able to tackle the situation without any big loss," he said.
