The Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) has called upon traders to sell products at prices fixed by the government to keep the market stable ahead of Eid–ul-Azha.

FBCCI Senior Vice-President and convener of market monitoring committee Mostofa Azad Chowdhury Babu made the call at a discussion with Mohammadpur Town Hall Dhaka North City Corporation Kitchen Market Merchant Association on Saturday afternoon.

During the meeting, Mostofa Azad urged them to keep the domestic market stable and not to capitalise on the global market crisis.

He instructed the market committee for monitoring the market to ensure that the products are sold at the prices fixed by the government.

Ahead of Eid-ul-Azha, there is still no crisis of spices, he told reporters after the meeting.

“FBCCI will recommend the names to the government agencies for punitive measures if it finds anyone responsible for creating an artificial crisis by stockpiling goods,” he said.

Besides, he urged the mill owners to send the dealers’ list for sugar, salt, flour etc to FBCCI.

Mohammadpur Town Hall Dhaka North City Corporation Kitchen Market Merchant Association President Md Lutfar Rahman said that the association shut down the shops which were accused of stockpiling and selling goods at a higher price and this will continue in future.

Among others, FBCCI Director Bijoy Kumar Kejriwal, Harun-Or Roshid, Mohammadpur Town Hall Dhaka North City Corporation Kitchen Market Merchant Association General Secretary Md Muslim Uddin Shikder were also present at the meeting.
