BANGLADESH BRINGING VIBRANCY IN ECONOMY By Muhammad Imran Muhammad Imran Ambassador of Bangladesh to UAE On 26 March 1971, Father of the Nation of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman declared Bangladesh an independent and sovereign state. The country became free on 16 December 1971 after a nine months’ war that saw huge blood-bath and enormous sacrifice of the people. Today’s Bangladesh was part of Mughal Empire and subsequently of British India. When the colonial rulers left the region in 1947, East Bengal - today’s Bangladesh - became a part of one of the two countries formed due to the partition of the subcontinent. But soon, the people of Bangladesh found their basic rights denied. They faced exploitation and mistreatment from the ruling elites. Despite adequate resources and demographic weight, they experienced oppression and subjugation in every aspects of life – cultural, economic and political – to the extent that they were about to lose their rich linguistic and ethno-cultural identity. People of Bangladesh demanded and tried to achieve their due rights in a civilized, nonviolent and democratic manner under the leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. But the verdict of the people in a nationwide general election in 1970 was denied. Finally, when the unarmed people were subjected to brutal attack and war was imposed on them, they resisted. They fought back and became victorious to achieve the independence. The world saw the birth of a new nation, Bangladesh, on 16 December 1971. The events that led to the creation of this new country shook the entire world. Bangladesh became a model of courage and sacrifice, an inspiration to fight against oppression and tyranny, an example for self-determination and victory. Bangladesh started her journey as an independent nation with a war-ravaged economy, a vacuum in the administration, all physical infrastructure destroyed, no foreign currency reserve and there were periodic natural calamities like cyclone and flood. Bangladesh has faced manifold challenges but the people of Bangladesh overcame all with enormous courage and determination. They have strived and succeeded to rise from the ashes to bring vibrancy in the economy with improvement in social indicators and continued expansion of infrastructural facilities. In the recent past, the country has changed every sphere of its national life. It is the long cherished aspiration of present government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to take the country to a new height of development. Despite being a densely populated country, Bangladesh had achieved success in fulfilling the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) targets. The government is now committed to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the national development plans have been aligned with the SDGs. Bangladesh has made remarkable progress in the areas of education and health. Targets for enrolment and gender parity in primary and secondary level education, lowering the under-five and maternal mortality rate, improving immunisation coverage and reducing the incidence of communicable diseases have been achieved. Population growth rate has been reduced considerably and life expectancy has been raised. In many such areas, Bangladesh is well ahead of her South Asian neighbours. The country has attained food-sufficiency producing 35 million tons of food in a year, sufficient to feed the entire 160 million people of the country.Bangladesh has now become a role model for fighting poverty, ensuring food security, empowering women and disaster management. The agriculture based economy of Bangladesh is being replaced by export-oriented industrialization and gradually moving towards a knowledge based economy.Bangladesh apparel industry is the second-largest in the world with an export earnings of about US$30 billion per year. Other key sectors include pharmaceuticals, ceramics, leather goods and electronics. Bangladesh is one of the top bicycle exporters to the EU countries and is now a globally acknowledged builder of ocean-going vessels. It is becoming a major destination of global IT outsourcing. Today, more than 130 million people (82% of total population) use mobile phones in Bangladesh while around 50 million people have access to internet. Bangladesh has been maintaining an average GDP growth rate of more than six percent during the last decades. Due to this consistent growth over the years Bangladesh’s GDP is now more than US$220 billion as per the current prices. During the last two years, the GDP growth was over seven percent and last year figure was 7.24 percent. Goldman Sachs highlighted Bangladesh as one of the next 11 emerging economies. Bangladesh have started receiving international recognitions. In 2015, Bangladesh was elevated to lower middle income economy from low income economy as per World Bank Atlas method when the GNI per capita crossed the threshold Bangladesh had achieved success in fulfilling the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) targets.
