Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN)– Bangladesh government-formed search committee has decided to publish advertisements in newspapers on Monday to appoint two deputy governors for Bangladesh Bank (BB), the country’s central bank.
The decision was taken at the first meeting of the committee, held at the central bank headquarters in the capital on Thursday with its convener Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad in the chair.
Dr. Ahmed also chairman of Palli Karma-Sahayak Foundation (PKSF) said the interested candidates can submit their applications until April 13 this year.
The committee has discussed about qualifications of the applicants at the meeting, according to a committee member.
The Bank and Financial Institutions Division (BFID) under Ministry of Finance earlier formed the five-member committee to select two deputy governors for the central bank.
Currently, two posts of BB deputy governors remain vacant after the government on March 16 cancelled contractual appointment of Abul Quasem and Nazneen Sultana following the digital heist of foreign exchange reserve from the BB account with the US Federal Reserve Bank in New York.
Cyber-criminals have digitally stolen US$101 million from Bangladesh’s foreign-exchange reserve, deposited with the US Federal Reserve Bank, and nearly $20 million of it was recovered from Sri Lanka.
