HALF-YEARLY ASSESSMENT OF BANGLADESH ECONOMY: TRENDS AND CHALLENGES

MONTHLY BANGLADESH ECONOMIC UPDATE, DECEMBER, 2015

MEU-December-2015The Unnayan Onneshan in its half yearly assessment of the economy for FY 2015-16 states that sluggish private investment, declining growth in revenue collection, and underperformance in external sector set inertia on the growth in gross domestic product (GDP). In addition to unsatisfactory trends in these major macroeconomic indicators, improvement in three basic dimensions of development – long and healthy life, access to knowledge, and decent standard of living – has not moved upward compared to those of other developing nations, as reflected in the Human Development Report 2015.    The think tank also points out that that structural bottlenecks in the forms of income inequality together with inequality in access to health and education, multidimensional poverty, and joblessness particularly among the youth are likely to put additional pressures on the progress of the economy.
