It is an outcome of the extensive research and brain storming of the Islamic Philosophers and Economists in the light of the Qur’aan and the Sunnah. The concept of Islamic banking having considered and proven it equitable and conducive to the economic progress, it has spread out across the globe under diverse nomenclatures such as, Shariah Banking, PLS Banking etc. In the absence of interest-free banks in the country, the people of Bangladesh, to meet emergency and against their will, had to do banking transactions with conventional banks. At long last, the first, interest-free
banking activities under Islamic Shariah set out in Bangladesh in the year 1983. Days in, days out, this banking system reaches in its golden pinnacle.

Although there are some differences in conventional banking marketing strategy an EXIM bank marketing strategy but both are almost same in case of product and pricing marketing strategy. In case of product strategy, merely name of the product is different from conventional banking. S W O T Analysis of EXIM Bank Ltd SWOT analysis is the detailed study of an organizations exposure and potential analysis is the detailed study of an organizations exposure and potential in perspective of its strength, weakness, opportunities and threats. This facilitates the organization to make their existing line of performance and also foresee the future to improve their performance in competition to their competitors. Strength EXIM bank ltd has already established a favorable reputation in the banking industry of the country. The bank has already shown a tremendous growth in the profit and deposits sector. EXIM bank ltd has provided its banking service with a top leadership and management position. The board of directors headed by its chairman Mr. Md. Nazrul Islam is a skilled person in the business world. Alamgir Kabir, the advisor of the bank is a reputed senior chartered accountant 30 years vast experience in accounts, audits, finance and banking at home & abroad. Kazi Masihur Rahman work as the managing director of bank management team. EXIM bank has already achieved a high growth rate accompanied by an impressive profit growth rate in 2001. The number of deposits and the loans and advances are also increasing rapidly. EXIM bank has an interactive corporate culture. The working environment is very friendly, interactive and informal. And there are no hidden barriers or boundaries while, communicate between the superior and the employees. This corporate culture provided as a great motivation factor among the employees. Weakness The important weakness is that the bank has no clear mission statement and strategic plan. The bank actually not has any long term strategies whether it wants to focus on retail banking or become a corporate bank. The path of the future should be determined with a strong feasible strategic plan. The bank failed to provide a strong quality-recruitment in the lower and some mid level position. As a result the services of the bank seem to be dues in the present days. The poor service quality has become a major problem for the bank. The quality of the service at EXIM bank is higher than the NCC bank, Prime bank or Dutch Bangla bank etc. But the bank has to compete with the Multinational Bank located here. Opportunity
In order to reduce the business risk, EXIM bank has to expand their business portfolio. The management can consider options of starting merchant banking or diversify into leasing and insurance sector. Opportunity in the retail banking lies in the fact that the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s increased population is gradually learning to adopt consumer finance. The bulk of our population is middle class. Different types of retail lending products have great appeal to this class. So a wide variety of retail lending products has a very large and easily pregnable market. A large of number of private banks is coming into the market in the recent time. In this competitive market EXIM bank must expand its product line to enhance its sustainable competitive advantage. In the product line, they can introduce the ATM to compete with the local and the foreign bank. They can introduce Credit card and Debit card system for their potential customer. In addition to these things, EXIM bank can introduce special corporate scheme for the corporate customer or officer who have an income level higher from the service holder. At the same time, they can introduce scheme or loan for various service holders. And the scheme should be separate according to the professions, such as engineers, lawyers, doctors etc. Threats All sustain multinational banks and upcoming foreign, private banks posseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enormous threats to EXIM bank ltd. If that happens the intensity of competition will rise further and banks will have to develop strategies to compete against at on slough of foreign banks. The default risks of all terms of loan have to be minimizing in order to sustain in the financial market. Because defaulter risk leads the organization towards to bankruptcy. EXIM bank has to remain vigilant about this problem so that proactive strategies are taken to minimize this problem if not elimination. The low compensation packages of the employees from the mid level to lower level to position threats the employee motivation. As a result good quality employees leave the organization as a whole. Conclusion Export Import Bank of Bangladesh Limited is a third- generation private commercial bank in the country with commendable operating performance Directed by the mission to provided prompt and efficient service to clients. It provided a wide range of commercial banking service EXIM Bank has been achieved success among its peer group within a short span of time with its professional and dedicated team of management having long experience, commendable knowledge and expertise in conversion with modern banking. With all its resources, the management of the bank firmly believes that the bank would be able to encounter problem that may arise both at micro and macro economic levels. The management of the bank is maintaining an efficient portfolio in order to have a healthy growth and retain customer satisfaction. This report has tried to present the overall performance of EXIM bank Ltd in comparison with its closest competitor in the same industry. From the analysis we found that the performance of EXIM bank Ltd is a very satisfactory one.
EXIM Bank is engaged in modern banking. It is expected that EXIM Bank by its efficient Asset and liability management will not be able to maintain its trend of growth and thus over come the threat. Neither Exim Bank nor any other commercial bank can effectively combat risk. However, Exim Bank having small and targeting niche market is likely to be less affected by restrictive monetary and fiscal policy. The Management of the Bank is planning to meet the required capital adequacy withering the stipulated time frame, and a loan and advance policy that expected the loan loss provisioning in future will be with in tolerable limit having little material impact on future profitability as well as net worth. Although EXIM Bank is yet to be fully automated it has an adequate modern technology to meet its present requirement and it’s proceeding aggressively to enhance its technology level. As EXIM Bank is performing well in traditional general banking and there is a good demand for Islamic Banking and the opinion of them (The Management) that the performance of the Bank is getting much better than past. I wish and hope that in future EXIM Bank will be Number one commercial Bank in Bangladesh. BIBLIOGRAPHY & REFERENCES
