In modern age, we are now vastly dependent on bank sector for our important activities. As a result, banks in Bangladesh are performing digitalize and effective activities to maintain a sound economy due to emphasize public services for profits. In this study the authors found that profit should not be earned at the expense of the world's most pressing environmental problem which can be caused a climate change through global warming. Western countries have already thought out of the box and introduced green banking for sustainable development. Sampling framed and statistical tools used by researchers and reveals that green banking (GB) is not only corporate social responsibility (CSR) but also in broader sense of corporate environmental responsibility (CER). It also explains the main objective of green banking is to keep the world livable without any significant damage. Specifically, we already have seen the light. But we have to adopt this idea for all commercial Bank either public or private.</em></p> Noorjahan Begum Md. Mazharul Islam Bhuiyan Nushrat Hashmi Nayan Kumar Sadhu Md.

It also results liberalization of trade. Hence, world trade or global trade acts as a coordinator of foreign trade of different countries. Due to the behavioral and structural position, world trade is also responsible for spreading crises and infectious diseases. Nowadays the world is facing a perilous situation for worldwide spreading of COVID-19 pandemic. The acceleration of this pandemic causes the deceleration of the normal life of the nations. The leaders of most of the countries implement restrictive policies to protect their citizens from this pandemic, i.e., lockdown, travel restrictions. Consequently, COVID-19 produces an economic impact through the interruptions of personal income, world trade, and demand &amp; supply chain. After the last financial crisis 2008-09, the world is again facing a destructive fall in world trade. The aim of this paper is to provide an overview of world trade during COVID-19 and the present situation of this whether it is in stagnation or recovery. The paper uses secondary data from different journals, websites, newspapers and blogs for analysis </em><em>purposes. This paper concludes that the world merchandise trade’s recovery is stronger than the world services trade. The reasons for sluggish world services trade is the restricted international travels &amp; tourisms. There is no equal merchandise trade recovery for all the countries. Some countries are winners &amp; some are losers. </em></p> Marzina Akhter Copyright (c) 2021 Marzina Akhter https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2021-09-26 2021-09-26 3 1 12 19 10.46545/aijbms.v3i1.205 APPLICATION OF SEVEN PRINCIPLES OF MAIZBHANDARI TARIQA ON BUSINESS ETHICS FOR SME’S SUSTAINABILITY IN FATIKCHARI, BANGLADESH https://www.acseusa.org/journal/index.php/aijbms/article/view/206 <p><em>Ethical awareness is vital for business organizations to gain the trust of customers and the sustenance of business.
