Additionally, this step aligns with the government’s strategic goal of conducting trade in Bangladeshi Taka (BDT) and Indian Rupee (INR), intending to address liquidity challenges and reduce reliance on the US dollar in global trade.

This achievement coincides with Bangladesh and India’s efforts to settle trade in their local currencies. Walton’s INR exports, around INR 1 billion annually, enable Bangladesh to match import payments with export earnings in INR. This reduces US dollar reliance and speeds up transactions, strengthening economic ties between the two nations.

The transaction agreement was formalized with the signatures of the CEO of Standard Chartered Bangladesh and the Managing Director and CEO of Walton Hi-Tech Industries PLC, underscoring their commitment to advancing the economic interests of both organizations and the countries they represent.
