FBCCI announces donation for Bangabazar businessmen

The Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) has announced a donation of Tk one crore for the rehabilitation of the business people whose shops were burnt down in the fire that ravaged Bangabazar Market on Apr 4. President of FBCCI Md Jasim Uddin made the announcement after visiting the wreckage of Bangabazar around 2:30 p.m. on Sunday (Apr 9), local media reported.

Jashim said he was out of the country during the incident and returned home on Saturday after performing Umrah.

“The Vice-President of our organisation has visited the market before. This incident is devastating for traders as they do the highest amount of business during the Holy Month of Ramadan.”

The FBCCI President also urged the shop owners association to find a permanent solution to the issues prevalent in the market. “For this, FBCCI will stand by them if necessary,” he added.

He also called upon all the business community of the country to stand beside the fire-affected businessmen of Bangabazar during this difficult time.
