In fact, prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, Bangladesh’s economic growth surpassed 7% for four consecutive years, a rate higher than Pakistan, India, and even China.
Yet these advances are frequently overlooked, leaving Bangladesh with a poor reputation on the global stage. While political, social, and economic problems persist, it is necessary to recognize the progress of the country. Join CSIS for an event to understand how Bangladesh made such strides and what the future may hold for the developing world.
This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
