Bangladesh Bank (BB) has issued a clarification over recent reports regarding restrictions on journalists' entry to the central bank.

In case of any special requirement, the journalists could get any information and explanation after collecting entry passes from the official concerned, it said.

At the same time, it said, the central bank kept on disseminating information through holding press conferences, issuing press releases and other ways on a regular basis.

Simultaneously, the BB had been regularly publishing all the economic information and data on its website to ensure free access to information, the BB statement said.
