BAJUS for maintaining accuracy in gold trade

Bangladesh Jeweller’s Association (BAJUS) has urged the gold retailers to maintain accuracy in their business.

“If you say 21 carat gold, you have to provide 21 carat. BAJUS will always be with honest gold traders. BAJUS will take organisational action against the gold traders who buy and sell stolen and adulterated gold,” Dewan Aminul Islam, vice-president of BAJUS, told a views-exchange meeting in Bagerhat on Saturday.

He said that BAJUS has been transformed into a strong organisation since Bashundhara Group Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir became president of the trade body.

“Country’s first gold refinery is being constructed by Bashundhara Group for the expansion of gold business in Bangladesh. When this factory starts, gold bars with ‘Made in Bangladesh’ written on them will be marketed. The gold of Bangladesh will also be exported abroad,” he said.

BAJUS Executive Members Reponul Hasan and Pabitra Chandra Ghosh, Khulna divisional President Raqibul Islam Chowdhury, Bagerhat unit Adviser Sanjoy Kumar Bakshi and General Secretary Niloy Kumar Bhadra were present at the meeting while district unit President Shyamal Kumar Sarkar chaired it.

At the meeting, gold traders mourned the death of BAJUS vice-president Anisur Rahman Dulal.
