Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday asked Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission to continue to develop the capital market.
The call came at a meeting with a delegation of BSEC, led by its Chairman M Khairul Hossain, at the Prime Minister's Office.
They briefed Hasina on demutualisation of bourses, new rules and restructuring of the commission.
Hasina lauded BSEC for attaining the highest status from the International Organisation of Securities Commissions, an alliance of organisations that regulate the world's securities and future markets.
She also said it is the regulator's major responsibility to look after the stockmarket so that no manipulative efforts take place.
