Economy will become normal by March-April
Planning Minister MA Mannan today said there is no dollar crisis in the country, only a shortage.
The economy will return to normalcy by March-April next year, he said.
He made the comments while talking to reporters after the opening ceremony of the two-day wrestling competition at Sunamganj district stadium this morning, reports our Sylhet correspondent.
The minister said, "Remittance has increased last month, and exports are also increasing. Slowly it will return to the previous state. I expect everything will become completely normal by March-April next year."
"Since I work inside [the government], it's like, I know about the groceries since I work in the kitchen. On that basis, I'm saying that there is no reason to fear," he said.
Mannan also said, "Fields are filled with paddy and vegetables, and ponds and haors are full of fish. So, why should we worry?"
Mentioning the prime minister's call on maintaining austerity, he said, "You don't have to spend money just because you have it; you have to spend it carefully.
"We, who work with the prime minister, are very careful now. Only those projects that are extremely important for the public are being considered."
