GDP in Bangladesh
Bangladesh - GDPGrowth remained robust in FY 2017, according to a recently-released provisional estimate. GDP expanded 7.2% in FY 2017, which ended in June 2017, a notch above the 7.1% rise in FY 2016. The economy benefited from better weather conditions that allowed for a recovery in the agricultural sector. Moreover, the traditional manufacturing sector continued to expand at a double-digit rate in the same period, albeit at a slightly weaker pace. While structural weaknesses continue to put a dent in growth prospects, the decision to postpone the long-awaited unified Value Added Tax (VAT) by two years casts a long shadow on fiscal sustainability and calls into question the government’s reform agenda.
