stimulus package is sometimes well and work splendidly, but there are some supervisory measures need to be taken by govt. to ensure that it is going to enhance consumer confidence,revitalize the market,increase the employment,diversify the production sector etc. apparently, this stimulus package is not for the diversification of the export sector that would have been more worthy measure for the well being of the country’s export measure but for the businessmen to recover the loss incurred due to low demand of their already made product in the international market.It is given as a compensation, as simple as that. Export sector, particularly RMG and leather sector is the example.but agriculture loan and agriculture sector prioritization has been a appreciable step. we must acknowledge it. but to make it more effective, Govt.need to ensure that this reaches to the target group.
