Economy performing well

Expecting another decade of vibrant economic activities, Finance Minister AMA Muhith yesterday said Bangladesh’s economy has been performing well for the last 10 years, reports BSS.

“We have managed our economy well in the last 10 years… I think, we should have another decade of regional cooperation and growth of trade,” he said, speaking as the chief guest at an international conference on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at Sonargaon Hotel in the city.

The Institute of Cost and Management Accountants of Bangladesh (ICMAB) organised the conference titled “Role of Professional Accountants towards achieving SDGs”.
