Capital Market stability is vital for attaining sustainable growth and development of economy. Capital market mobilizes fund and facilitates long term financing for public and private sector. The economic development of our country is to be supported by a strong and stable capital market. Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission is working towards that end.
I am delighted to be here to inaugurate Bangladesh Academy for Securities Markets’ (BASM) campus. BASM is formed with the objective of imparting financial literacy throughout the country. The government has undertaken “Nationwide Financial Literacy Program” to strengthen the fundamentals of Capital Market. The establishment of BASM is a major stride towards achieving that goal.
Today, Bangladesh is experiencing rapid economic growth and infrastructural development. If we want to share this prosperity with a larger section of our society we must ensure nationwide financial literacy and capital market sustainability. I hope, BASM will spread the financial education to the root level and fulfill the needs of financial education of capital market participants.
