In my report, the main areas of commercial banking have been covered is Foreign Exchange Section which comprises following three departments:( Foreign Exchange Department( Foreign Remittance Section( Import Section and( Export Section.5. Limitation of the Study:There have been some limitations from which these report suffers. The limitations are briefly pointed out below: Time is the first limitation as the duration of the program was of two and a half month only. Another limitation of this report is Bank's policy of not disclosing some data and information for obvious reason, which could be very much useful. The data that seems insufficient may be suffering from lack of reliability to some extent. Supply of more practical and contemporary data is another shortcoming. The study was not done very successfully due to inexperience. Recent -data is not available because of not holding AGM within 4 years.

The inflation rate has come down significantly to 7.2% at the end of November 1999 mainly due to bumper crop production. The monetary and credit policy for FY 2000 has been formulated with the objective of keeping foreign exchange reserves at a satisfactory level and rate of inflation at a tolerable limit. Adoption of measures like massive agricultural credit disbursement and increased input supply have contributed a lot to bumper crop production in FY 1999. Similar measures have also been undertaken to maintain higher growth in agriculture in current FY 2000.

Performance of the Industrial Sector, however, was not satisfactory during the year. After growing by 9.5% in 1997-98, industrial production fell to 2.5% in 1998-99.
