    Bangladesh: Recommendation to increase the number of arms factories.

    We can not rely on foreign arms for our defense. Creating a military industrial complex is the only way to proceed. Its a double edged sword but such is life. There is no substitute for self reliance every taka spent is lost revenue... i would rather it goes to BD companies. It will increase...

    Bangladesh eases rules further to get cash incentives on remittances

    Expats wants to send money...why burden them with paperwork. Abandon the whole lot of it. If we compare how much money is allowed to be whiten each year this 2.5% incentive is nothing.... GoB will make it back many times over through economic activities hopefully translating into tax...

    BD should put forward buy as much as it can. Russians want to sell it for cheap we should take advantage. EU is carrying on, china is carrying on, india is carrying on...no one going to care if we do.

    Export of BJMC’s privately produced jute products begins

    Going private is the only way to proceed. GoB must divest from economic activities unless to give a legup to the private sector. We simply are not collecting enough tax to keep alive these bogus luxuries that keep making a loss like Biman.

    Trailer of Mujib, biopic on Bangladesh founder unveiled at Cannes 2022

    Trailer of Mujib, biopic on Bangladesh founder unveiled at Cannes 2022

    Would india or modi be highlighting that Mujib was propakistan during partition against hindutva? No his entire life will be condensed into anti pakistan period and would be full of demonisation of the muslim narrative. Epic BAL error... it is simply anti muslim propaganda.... Bangladesh and...
