"The Next Hope"
Bangladesh is growing faster than our expectations towards its decisive target to be a middle income country by 2021. We will hopefully be a higher middle income country by 2030 through proper transformation of our vast human resources into capital resources. It's time to make right decisions for our children and our grandchildren. China, India and Japan are all competing to make agreements with our government to build our first ever deep-see port. At the same we need to maintain a balanced relationship with all interested parties including Russia and the World Bank.
I agree with critics that we need to take necessary steps to reduce the extreme poverty figure close to zero by 2030, or if possible by 2025. If we can, it will be a matter of time before many other countries start showing interest in Bangladesh.
