All the while, Bangladesh has managed to impress the world due to development achievements in many of the domestic sectors. Sectors that account for economic prosperity are in the export of Ready Made Garments (RMG), Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), Poverty alleviation, agricultural revolution as well as record breaking foreign exchange remittance and women empowerment, along with significant progress in UN SDG programe. And to highlight the most important achievement so far in the history of our nation, poverty has dramatically been reduced by 20 percent.
It is important to mention that the Bangladesh Military has made extra ordinary contribution to the UN peace keeping missions in many countries.
Furthermore, RMG textile accounts for 80 percent of the total export earnings and accounts for world’s 3rd largest supplier of apparel markets.
As Bangladesh has collectively achieved significant improvements in these sectors, this is an opportunity to reintroduce and brand Bangladesh globally with better recognition and reputation. As you are aware, these accomplishments have caused Bangladesh to be recognized more and more by the developed world.
