BB to remain without a governor until July 12

Fazle Kabir went into retirement from Sunday after serving as governor of Bangladesh Bank for a little more than six years.

His successor Abdur Rouf Talukder is scheduled to join the top post of the central bank on July 12.

Talukder took an early retirement as the finance secretary as per rules of government service.

The central bank thus remains without a governor for this interim period.
