Bangladesh economic growth assessment

This assessment is one of several undertaken by USAID/ Bangladesh that will provide an input into the design of new economic growth activities to be implemented under the new strategy. The mission has also contracted assessments covering such themes as gender, the Global Development Alliance, energy, agricultural productivity, nutrition, and food security. The scope of work for this assessment directed the team to survey the current state of Bangladesh’s economy, identify constraints to its further broad-based economic growth, and then suggest possible USAID interventions to help address these constraints. Specific areas of focus included macroeconomic policy and international trade, finance, private sector development, and economic governance.
