A total of 38 non-resident Bangladeshis (NRBs) will receive the Commercially Important Person (CIP) status on January 6 next year for their contribution to the country’s economy, reports UNB.

Ministry of Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment will hand over the cards to them, said Muhammad Rasheduzzman, a spokesperson of the ministry.

He said, “Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will hand over the awards through a virtual ceremony on January 6.”

The government gives CIP status in three categories, including direct investment to the country’s industries, sending the highest amount of remittance, and importing products from Bangladesh, every year.

The CIPs will enjoy several benefits and facilities from the day of the issuance of the gazette.
