Over the last one year food prices
have gone up by leaps and bounds. Usually the prices of essential commodities
go up during the fasting month of the Muslims , the Ramadan because the
unscrupulous traders try to make unholy profit by the raised demands during the
holy month of Ramadan.
However, Anissul Huq, the President of
the Federation of Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce and Industries says that
government, business enterprises and the Chambers of Commerce are working
together to assure that the prices remain stable during Ramadan.
In an exclusive interview with VOA
Bangla Service, Anis says the prices of essential commodities are already
coming down. He also adds that due to stability in Garments and other
industrial sectors, it is assumed that the economic growth next year would be higher.
