Private credit growth slows
After rising for two months, private sector credit growth came down again in January due to the
seemingly never-ending political unrest. Private sector credit grew by 13.3% (YoY) in January, in
contrast to the 13.5% growth recorded the previous month, according to Bangladesh Bank. Even
the sliding lending rates -- now 12-13% against 14-15% a year ago -- cannot boost demand for
funds from the private sector, bankers said.

Major telcos may shun spectrum auction
Four top mobile phone operators may not take part in the forthcoming spectrum auction as some
of the key issues that the government promised to sort out during the last bidding remain
unresolved.
In a joint letter, Grameenphone, Banglalink, Robi and Airtel drew Finance Minister AMA Muhith's
attention to their “investors' inability to recommend participation” in the auction for 1,800 MHz and
2,100 MHz bands, due to be held on April 30.
