Bangladesh to Go For Yet Another Oil Price Hike


The government in Bangladesh is considering reducing revenue expenditure, raising the price of petroleum products, and introducing two-day weekly holiday as part of austerity measures to meet the economic crisis arising out of the huge price hike of petroleum in the international market. Finance Minister M Saifur Rahman at a high level meeting yesterday at his ministry hinted at these probable decisions, saying Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation (BPC) had to borrow Tk 5,000 crore from the Nationalised Commercial Banks (NCBs) as local petroleum price has not been adjusted with the global price. Asked if the government is going to increase petroleum price, Saifur referred to the present oil price of $ 68 per barrel in the world market and said the government will have to spend $2 billion to import oil in the current fiscal year.
