Sixty-seven individuals and institutions have been honoured with Bangladesh Bank Remittance Award-2020 under five categories.
The awardees included professionals, traders, remittance receiving banks, exchange houses and remittance sending expatriates.
Though the BB has been giving the award for the last 7 years but organizing the 7th remittance award function was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal handed over the awards as the chief guest at a function held at the Krishibid Institution Bangladesh (KIB) auditorium in the capital.
BB Governor Fazle Kabir, Secretary to the Ministry of Expatriate Welfare and Overseas Employment Dr Ahmed Munirus Salehin and Secretary to Financial Institutions Division Sheikh Mohammad Saleem Ullah were present at the function as special guests.
