Speakers urge rationality in power, energy price hiking

UNB

Speakers at a seminar on energy pricing said that the energy regulator should pay more attention to the concerns of the consumers and industries in fixing prices of power and petroleum and maintain rationality in the pricing mechanism, reports UNB. "The rationality of Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) in its price increase should be understandable to the people and the government should give more authority to the regulators in this regard", said Dr. Ahsan H. Mansur, executive director of Policy Research Institute of Bangladesh (PRI) while responding to question from audience. Dr Mansur made a keynote presentation at the seminar at International Convention Centre City, in the city.

With energy secretary Abu Hena Md. Rahmatul Muneem in the chair, the seminar was also addressed, among others, by Power Development Board chairman Khaled Mahmud, BERC member Mizanur Rahman, Petrobangla chairman Abul Monsur Mohammad Foyejullah, BPC chairman Mohammad Akram Al Hossain, energy advisor of CAB Prof Shamsul Alam and Bangabandhu Chair Professor at Asian Institute of Technology Dr Joyashree Roy.
