The objectives for the development have not been met government organizations, Finance Minister AMA Muhith think.
He was talking to a delegation of Bangladesh Development Bank Limited (BDBL) on Monday.
The, the state-owned commercial banks specializing Yeasin President Md Ali and CEO Md Zillur Rahman handed over a check of Tk 100 million dividends to Muhith.
Finance Minister praised the bank to the government dividends each year. “It has the best record among all government banks.”
“We collected the profits or dividends, it is called, from the private sector. The managers have demonstrated their skills,” he said.
“The government collects a lot of money. But when it is a state-owned bank, which is a little different,” Muhith said.
“Our banks are not in good condition. Especially, the big banks have problems. We need to give them money,” he said.
“I wonder when all government banks will advance to this position (of BDBL),” he said.
According to the finance minister, government organizations are the result of a “philosophy of post-war Britain after 1944”.
“The goal was to establish one or two NGOs to follow. Their traditions, activities and support for the law would become an example for others.
“I just remember that dream. It never really happened,” Muhith said.
He also praised the state Janata Bank for its “good” records.
