The country Bangladesh was born in 1971. The indomitable and undisputed leader, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, who was born about 100 years ago in 1920, led the struggle for independence and inspired the nation with a dream of becoming a land of Golden Bengal. It has been an incredible journey since the independence, when the nation began from the scratch. Especially in the last one and half a decade, Bangladesh has turned the tide of progress and is now an example for the world. Reviewing after 50 years of independence, we utter with confidence, the nation is on the right track and the future is ours. Bangladesh we experience today is ready to take the leading and deciding steps towards the world of tomorrow.

Bangladesh is growing rapidly over a decade and is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. Economic and political stability are driving its journey toward the future. Currently, it’s the 41st largest economy and will be the 25th largest economy by 2035. In a very short span of about 13 years, the nation has grown from being a 50 billion dollar economy to a 470 billion dollar economy.

Bangladesh has laid out its grand vision to become an ‘Upper Middle-Income Country’ in the next decade and a ‘Developed Country’ by 2041.
