The Dhaka Stock Exchange will be closed from December 7 to December 11, 2008, and there will be no trading, clearing and settlement activities on these dates. However, other financial institutions will only be closed on December 8 to 10, 2008.
Note that, despite recent attempts to change this (2007-01-29), weekends are Fridays and Saturdays in Bangladesh, thus the above announcement means that Bangladesh's financial sector will be on public holidays from December 5 to December 13, inclusively.
