Dhaka Bureau Policy Times :
Message from the United Nations Secretary-General H.E António Guterres on the occasion of Bangladesh’s graduation from a least developed country (LDC) to a developing country.
His remarks were as follows:
‘I am delighted that Bangladesh has fulfilled the criteria for graduation from the world’s least developed countries. This is a clear signal that the country is building an inclusive and thriving economy, with a commitment to lifting millions of people from poverty and hunger.
I also commend Bangladesh’s achievements in women’s empowerment and access to education.
Graduation is a milestone. Strong vision, national leadership, and sound policies, and programs will be crucial as Bangladesh strives to become a middle‑income country and implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
