What is the reason for the rapid growth of the economy of Bangladesh?


When Bangladesh became independent in 1971. At that time the economy of Bangladesh was fragile. According to 1972 estimates, the country’s total GDP was only 600 million. But in contrast to this small economy, the population was about seven crores. But times have changed. After the independence of Bangladesh, there was political instability in the country for a long time. In an army coup on 15 August 1975, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Rahman was assassinated by the rebel forces.

This is how the political instability continues. In the meantime, Bangladesh had to fight against terrorists again.The freedom fighters of Chittagong Hill Tracts also became helpless.  However, the Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina agreed to make a peace agreement with them. As a result, the tourist city of Chittagong Hill Tracts is safe for all.  The golden days of Bangladesh’s economy started in 2014. At that time the GDP growth rate was about 7%. At present, the total GDP of Bangladesh is about 409 billion US dollars.

(Made in Bangladesh) ready-made garments are exported abroad.  In the fiscal year 2019-2020, about 38 billion dollars is earned by exporting readymade garments. Which will increase further in the 2021-2022 fiscal year. At present, about four million people in the country are involved in the garment industry in one way or another. Most of them are women.

The 3.5 million Bengali expatriates in the Middle East play the biggest role in the country’s economy. Bengalis work mainly in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates. The government has taken various initiatives at different times for expatriates in the Middle East. As a result, expatriates started sending money to the country legally. As a result, the country’s remittances continue to grow rapidly.

It gets more intelligent during the Corona epidemic. In the fiscal year 2019-2020, the contribution of expatriates to the GDP of Bangladesh was 12%. Surprisingly, the people of Bangladesh do not call expatriates “workers”. Rather, they are regarded as “remittance fighters”.
