Introduction of commodity exchange to eliminate under, over-invoicing: BSEC Chairman

Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC) Chairman Prof Shibli Rubayat Ul Islam has said the scope for under-invoicing and over-invoicing can be eliminated by introducing the commodity exchange in the country. “Work is going on to introduce commodity exchange in the country. If commodity exchange is introduced, then it will be possible to see both the international market and the scenario in the local market while staying inside the country,” he said. The BSEC Chairman said this while addressing as the chief guest in a discussion titled “Problems and Challenges of Capital Market in Bangladesh” organised by the Economic Reporters Forum (ERF), at its auditorium in the capital’s Paltan area on Monday, according to UNB. The BSEC Chairman mentioned that if the commodity exchange is launched in the country, then anyone can know the price of rice in Ghana while staying in Bangladesh as well as which countries want to take Bangladeshi RMG items at what price. “With commodity exchange, we’ll be able to see the international market and the local market while staying at home for which there will be no scope for under-invoicing and over-invoicing,” he noted.
