jan 2020 update of new econics journal -case brace

our testimony web to sir fazle abed who died 20 dec 2019 is fazleabed.com
brac has many moving parts - we welcome exchange of how to catalogues these from perspective of potential partners

sir fazle used to describe a big new growth division once a decade
so starting 2010s the fintech partnership around www.bkash.com were mega! the tech experts doing this work "independently" from traditional brac offices though they are a component of the total value chain of financing poorest across bangladesh

2000 saw nation leading enterprises become an ever clearer strategy and the start of an international office in the netherlands- in bangladesh an ngo cant fud intl work hence the need for an international office so that brac could become the worlds largest ngo partnership- additionally as nearly a third of bangladesh foreign exchange comes from remittances - serving the diaspora remittances needs presence internationally as well as nationally

sir fazle roundtable briefing at japan embassy partly in remembrance to The Economist's Norman Macrae provided 3 hours of dialogues mainly focused on how brac university would be his legacy- while started steadily as a private university in 2001 - he hoped it would become the space where the futures of sdg solutions would match his lifetimes work

the university is also in a unique position to understand international and national research

on relatively new to us parts of brac enterprises we note


on brac education - we have followed the major awards sir fazle has received - and happily share who to talk to at brac on this fast moving area

brac's story in terms of being the education economy of a quarter of a billion economy and since 1970 pioneering one of asia's 2 main models of rural keynesianism is very different from all microcredisummit descriptions - we recommend studying 50 years world of fazle abed as a pursuit in its own right for educators, economists and all of youth partners in the 17 sdgs
