Pubali Bank celebrates 60th anniversary

Pubali Bank recently celebrated its diamond jubilee at Pan Pacific Sonargaon Dhaka inviting people from different sectors.

The bank initially emerged in the then East Pakistan as Eastern Mercantile Bank Limited at the initiative of some Bangalee entrepreneurs in 1959, says a press release.

After independence, the bank was nationalised and renamed in 1972 before being denationalised and getting its present name in 1983.

Mahfuz Anam, editor and publisher of The Daily Star, was a guest speaker at the celebration while Md Ashadul Islam, senior secretary to Financial Institutions Division, and lawmaker Hafiz Ahmed Mazumdar were present.

Azizul Huq, chairman of the bank, presided over the ceremony while Md Abdul Halim Chowdhury, CEO, delivered the welcome speech.

Directors Monzurur Rahman, Habibur Rahman, Fahim Ahmed Faruk Chowdhury, Md Abdur Razzak Mondal, M Kabiruzzaman Yaqub, Rumana Sharif, Azizur Rahman, Arif A Choudhury and Asif A Choudhury and independent director Shahdeen Malik were present.
