LDC Study Report

February 18, 2021

Since independence, Bangladesh has climbed a long way up the development ladder. The progress measured in terms of income, poverty and human development is truly impressive. Development progress has been particularly rapid since 2009 under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, particularly in terms of acceleration of GDP growth. Continuing on its path of growth hike, per capita income has risen to $1909 in FY 2019, which is over 20 times the per capita income at independence. In 2015, Bangladesh crossed the threshold of the World Bank-defined lower middle-income country (LMIC). In 2018 it also crossed the threshold for graduation from the UN-defined list of Least Developed Countries (LDC). The presumptive date for formal graduation out of LDC status is 01 January 2024, after going through the standard process of approval and announcement under the UN system.

GED Policy Study 2018

Education Sector Strategy and Action for implementing of 7th Five Year Plan (2016-2020)

February 16, 2021

The 7th Plan seeks to push further the ongoing structural transformation in Bangladesh. Accordingly, the manufacturing sector is targeted to achieve double digit growth while organized service sector is expected to further mature. GDP acceleration will be fuelled by increasing investment, rising from 29% in FY2015 to 34% by FY2020, and manufactured exports. Rural economy is projected to continue to undergo transformation as more non-farm activities emerge and the spread of ICT technology fosters knowledge and reduces the transaction costs. These structural changes along with GDP growth acceleration will continue to create more higher- income jobs that will not only be able to absorb the new entrants to the labor force but also reduce the employment share of agriculture. Higher productivity economy wide will contribute to higher real wages.
