MONTHLY Bangladesh Economic Update, June 2016

June 2016 New

The Unnayan Onneshan (UO), an independent multidisciplinary think tank, in its June issue of Bangladesh Economic Update 2016 reveals that the low implementation status of public investment coupled with continued sluggish private investment may cause the current state of jobless growth to intensify.


Expressing its concern over the poor implementation of ADP during July-May period of the FY 2015-16, the UO shows that only 62 percent of ADP has been implemented during this period whereas for FY 2014-15, FY 2013-14, FY 2012-13 and FY 2011-12, the implementation status was 67 percent, 66 percent, 67 percent, and 70 percent respectively.


The think tank points out that during July-May of FY 2015-16, 75 percent of total ADP allocation for roads and highways division has been implemented compared to 76 percent for the corresponding period of the previous fiscal year. However, only 46 percent of the total allocation of ADP for bridges division has been implemented during July-May of FY 2015-16 compared to 44 percent during July-May of FY 2014-15.
