Mustafizur Rahman and Estiaque Bari

Political Economy of Change in Bangladesh

Development experiences in a number of countries bear evidence that these countries are unable to come out of the middle-income status after having graduated from the low-income group. They fall into what is often termed as the middle-income trap.

 

 

Many factors underpin such an outcome. The study at hand analyzes how Bangladesh may be able to avoid such a trap, by relying on the country’s strengths and how it could accelerate the pace of development to graduate from the middle-income status.

The publication, one among a series that analyse the political economy of development in countries in Asia, was an outcome of a country and regional initiative by Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in Asia, exploring paths for development. Similar studies have been published by FES in India, Vietnam and Indonesia.
