We all people are consumers living in an era of digital innovations- as workers, public servants and investors. And we all have a common goal to live in a fair manner which requires inclusive growth and civic rights. So, we need a fair financial society where social justice, consumer rights protection and inclusive investment are indispensable for peaceful and prosperous coexistence. So, journalism should not be silent.
To build a fair financial society, journalism could be an immediate short-term weapon. And media should evolve into highly adaptive learning organizations and undertake the job of consumer education and fighting against exploitations. As business development models are being reshaped and economic and innovation cycles are shrinking, journalists should strive for innovation and enhanced efficiency.
With this idea, Bangladesh Journalists’ Foundation For Consumers & Investors (BJFCI), has stood out from the crowd as a unique platform of senior journalists, serious consumers and inclusive investors of Bangladesh to build a fair financial society fostering consumer rights movements and promoting inclusive investments through effective media interventions. The power of media is great but a free and responsible journalism is essential to push up inclusive growth, help cement social values and protect consumer rights
