Bangladesh fastest-growing economy in Asia-Pacific: ADB

UNB, Dhaka

Bangladesh has achieved the fastest growth in the Asia-Pacific economies comprised of 45 countries, according to the Asian Development Bank (ADB). In the outgoing fiscal year of 2018-19, the AD said, the country attained 7.9 percent growth which was fastest expansion since 1974.

The bank predicted that the growth will be 8 percent in the FY2019 and FY2020, terming it a new record. ADB Country Director for its Bangladesh resident mission Manmohan Parkash handed over the ADO to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her Sangsad Bhaban office.

The ADO, the annual publication of the ADB, evaluates and forecasts economic performance of the 45 Asian and Pacific countries. The premier said the government is gradually advancing the economy in a well-planned manner.

"Our Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had a vision for developing the country in totality and reducing the gap between the rich and poor”, she said.
