According to an internal directive of Bangladesh Bank, it has been decided to stop foreign travel with the new central bank’s own funding and partial financing.
Bangladesh Bank is discouraging the import of luxury goods to cope with the US dollar crisis. For the same reason, officials and employees of the state have been banned from traveling abroad. Following this, restrictions were also imposed on the foreign travel of the officers and employees of Bangladesh Bank. As a result, foreign travel, participation in educational activities, seminars and workshops of Central Bank officials and employees were stopped.
Earlier on Monday, the finance ministry directed government employees and officials to stop traveling abroad by employees of state-owned, autonomous, semi-government institutions, state-owned banks and financial institutions.
