    High Quality Government Grants & Financing Schemes Services

    Under government stimulus packages, two financing schemes worth Tk 35 billion will be launched to help the Covid-affected agriculture and tourism sectors. At a meeting of Bangladesh Bank’s board of directors, two proposals to this effect were approved. The financing schemes were approved by the board to help offset the negative impact of the ongoing Covod-19 pandemic on the sectors. In the second phase of the financing facility for priority sectors, a financing fund worth Tk 30 billion will be established for the agriculture sector. On the same grounds, the BB had previously formed a special financing scheme for the agricultural sector worth Tk 50 billion. Another financing schemes worth Tk 5.0 billion will be established to assist the tourism industry in clearing employee salaries and allowances.


    The Bangladesh Bank board of directors has decided to establish a finance scheme to assist commercial banks in implementing the government’s Tk 10 billion tourism stimulus package. The loan’s interest rate is 8.0 percent, but borrowers will only pay 4.0 percent interest because the government will provide the remaining 4.0 percent as an interest subsidy to the banks.


    The central bank had announced the guidelines for implementing the government’s new Tk 10 billion stimulus package for the tourism industry.


    On July 15, it issued a circular outlining the rules for how hotels, motels, theme parks, and other tourism businesses could access the low-cost funds. The board turned down two banks’ request for a waiver of the penalty imposed by the BB earlier for concealing CIB (Credit Information Bureau (CIB) information on loans.


    To counteract the effects of the pandemic on various sectors, Bangladesh’s Prime Minister has announced 28 stimulus packages totaling Tk 1.35 trillion.The packages, which account for 4.9 percent of Bangladesh’s GDP, are now being implemented under the supervision of the central bank and the finance ministry in order to mitigate the negative effects of the pandemic coronavirus on the economy and speed up the country’s economic recovery.

    The following are some examples of industries


    Improving access to finance for micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) is a fundamental challenge at the heart of a country’s financial and economic development; debates over MSME policy design and effectiveness continue. The Bangladesh Bank’s efforts appear to have increased overall MSME financing schemes from a low base; however, by reviewing past and current financing schemes and institutions, its impact and effectiveness could be enhanced. MSMEs have limited access to formal finance compared to the South Asian average, with a funding gap of Bangladeshi Taka (TK) 237 billion (US$2.8 billion) estimated.

    Micro Industry:


    In the manufacturing sector, micro industry will be defined as businesses with a value (replacement cost) of fixed assets excluding land and buildings of between Tk. one and Tk. 7.5 million, or with a workforce of between 16 and 30, or fewer. In the service sector, micro industry will be defined as businesses with a value (replacement cost) of fixed assets excluding land and buildings of less than Tk. One million, or with fewer than 15 employees.

    Small Industry:


    In the manufacturing sector, small industry will be defined as businesses with a value (replacement cost) of fixed assets excluding land and buildings of between Tk. 7.5 million and Tk. 150 million, or with 31 to 120 employees. In the case of services, ‘small industry’ will refer to businesses with a value (replacement cost) of fixed assets excluding land and buildings of between Tk. one million and Tk. twenty million, or with 16 to 50 employees.

    Medium Industry:


    In the manufacturing sector, medium industry is defined as businesses with a value (replacement cost) of fixed assets excluding land and buildings of between Tk. 150 million and Tk. 500 million, or with 121 to 300 employees. In the case of services, the term “medium industry” refers to businesses with a value (replacement cost) of fixed assets excluding land and buildings of between Tk. 20 million and Tk. 300 million, or with 51 to 120 employees.


    Bangladesh has 1, 04,007 micro, 8, 59,318 small, and 7,106 medium enterprises, according to the National Economic Census 2013.MSMEs’ contribution to Bangladesh’s economy could be summarized as follows: Bangladeshi MSMEs are responsible for a significant portion of the country’s employment.

    Large Industries:

    MSMEs are thought to be the mother of large industries; large industries can be founded directly by capitalist entrepreneurs, but a significant number of large industries are descended from MSMEs.


    Increased Productivity:

    Bangladeshi MSMEs compete with one another in terms of product quality and market price. One of the contributing factors to market competitiveness is productivity. As a result, MSMEs are helping to boost productivity and product quality in order to remain competitive in both the domestic and international markets. It is clear from the preceding discussion that MSMEs are small in size but very important contributors to economic development.


    As a result, not only in policy, but also in practice, the government and other stakeholders must pay close attention to MSME development. The government intends to provide investors and exporters with One Stop Service (OSS) and Single Window Services. If both initiatives are properly implemented, we may be able to reduce our long position in the Ease of Doing Business Index. Our financing schemes create best value for business
