Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN) – The central bank of Bangladesh will sit with the top management of nine new private commercial banks on Wednesday aiming to review their overall performance, officials said Tuesday.

 “The central bank has called the meeting for the first time to know their overall situation,” a senior official of the Bangladesh Bank (BB) told BBN in Dhaka.

The central banker also said BB Governor Atiur Rahman will chair the meeting, where chairmen and managing directors of the new banks will be present.

 The banks started their operations in the last year after completing the existing rules and regulations properly.

Currently, 56 commercial banks are now running their businesses across the country.
