Bangladesh’s Members of the Parliament (MP) from both treasury and opposition benches have expressed their firm hope that the country would achieve the second largest economic growth within 2019 because of the tremendous development carried out continuously in all sectors. They said the living standard of Bangladesh has already risen up, giving a clear indication that the country is becoming a developed one.
Lawmakers of the 10th Jatiya Sansad (parliament) were proud to say that Bangladesh's average per capita income is $1,316 at present ($547 previously) and the poverty rate has come down to 7 per cent (24 per cent previously). The MPs made these observations while they were taking part in a discussion on President Md Abdul Hamid's speech given on January 20 on the first day of the 9th session of the 10th parliament. They said the President highlighted different positive aspects in social, political and economic sectors that set Bangladesh in motion on the wheels of a faster growth.
According to the lawmakers, the present government is relentlessly working towards advancing the national economy in a faster pace by speeding up development in all sectors. The country had already achieved success in the health, electricity, education, agriculture, food, communications, science and technology, industries, women and children sectors. The law makers said, Bangladesh has become a digital country within the shortest possible time due to the farsightedness of Sajeeb Wazed Joy, son of Prime Minister Sheik Hasina and the adviser of ICT affairs to the Prime Minister.
