Minister watches chairmen battle
The chairmen of the Bangladesh Investment Development Authority (Bida) and the National Board of Revenue (NBR) exchanged heated words at a business and trade meeting presided over by Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed in Dhaka on Wednesday. The Bida and NBR bosses clashed over the subject of gratuities allegedly paid by staff members to businessmen. "The National Board of Revenue has changed greatly and for the better over the years," Bida Executive Chairman Kazi M Aminul Islam said to his counterpart. "But the clerks and staff still misbehave with businessmen". In reply, NBR Chairman Md Nojibur Rahman said he thought his opposite number had "forgotten to do his homework for this meeting". "It’s true, the NBR has changed greatly and the chairman does not take bribes anymore. The Bida chairman could ask the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) president over the issue if he is unconvinced," Nojibur said. FBCCI president Abul Matlub Ahmed said that his experience of using the NBR was smooth. "At my last visit to the NBR for a registration, it only took me five minutes to complete the task," he said. Wednesday's meeting was held under the title 'Ease of doing business and trade facilities' at the Commerce Ministry Auditorium in Dhaka, and was attended by representatives of government agencies and business associations.
