The Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission may sign an agreement with the London Stock Exchange to improve the country’s capital market and pull foreign investments to the market.

The commission made the move in a meeting with British high commissioner Robert Chatterton Dickson during the envoy’s visit to the commission on Sunday, BSEC officials said.

They said that the envoy discussed strengthening the Bangladesh stock market through collaboration with the LSE.

BSEC chairman Shibli Rubayat-Ul-Islam told New Age that the British high commissioner met the BSEC top brass to establish collaboration between the Bangladesh stock market and the LSE.

He said that the agreement might raise the standards of the country’s capital market to the international standards.

Shibli also said that the BSEC might draw attention of foreign investors to the market through the deal with the LSE.
