Government of Bangladesh (GoB) has honored 131 exporters in 22 export sectors with Commercially Important Persons (CIP) status for their outstanding performance in 2014. The ministry of commerce and export promotion bureau also awarded CIP cards to 33 business persons under the ex-officio category from different business chambers and trade bodies.
Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed handed over the CIP cards to the industry owners on 12 November 2017 at Hotel Sonargaon in the capital where he said, the export volume from Bangladesh has increased, the value has not gone up much. He urged exporters to explore potential in the new market.
Bangladesh RMG exporters are facing tough competition due to the devaluation of the currencies of countries such as Vietnam and Turkey said on behalf of CIP card recipients, Asif Ibrahim, a former president, DCCI and Vice Chairman, Newage Group.
Asif Ibrahim urged the government to take special measures to boost exports to countries such as Brazil, Mexico and Russia. The government should also withdraw the tax on export receipts and give 5 percent incentives to exporters, he added.
FBCCI Acting President Sheikh Fazle Fahim, EPB Vice President Bijoy Bhattachariya, FBCCI former president A.K Azad also delivered their speech in the occasion.
The CIPs are authorized to various government facilities until the expiry of their cards.
- They are allowed to enter the secretariat and invited to program.
- They are also given the letter of introduction in Bangladesh embassies in different countries and allowed to use the VIP lounge at airports.
