More work opportunities should be created
It is good news for us that the country's poverty rate came down to 21.8 per cent in 2018, according to (BBS). Meanwhile the poverty rate, as per the lower poverty line came down at 11.3 per cent in last year. Bangladesh has made remarkable progress in reducing poverty, supported by sustained economic growth. Life expectancy, literacy rates and per capita food production have increased significantly in the country. Bangladesh requires creating more and better jobs by private investment, diversifying exports and most importantly building human capital. The country also needs to make doing business easier, complete its mega-projects on a fast track, improve financial sector governance and ensure a reliable supply of electricity.
Infrastructure development is needed for improving rural communication network thus facilitating overall socio-economic advancement. We have a huge educated man power and that is our strength. We should create proper work opportunities for this huge education.
