With a view to addressing the potential fallout of global economic, the Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) has called upon the government to form an independent Economic Strategy Advisory Committee.
The anti-graft watchdog made the call at a time when the global economy is battered by the coronavirus pandemic and Russia's Ukraine invasion, according to a press statement issued on Friday. TIB executive director Iftekharuzzaman said that it would be unlikely for the country to remain immune to the impending global economic challenges and uncertainties as demonstrated by the prime minister's thoughtful call to exercise austerity and explore other means of preventing the impending crisis.
'We have no doubt that the government will do everything it can to not only successfully confront the crisis, if any, but also retain growth,' he said.'Therefore, we call upon the government to form an independent committee to complement and strengthen efforts to do the task.'
