We, Bangladeshis, are habituated to look at Bangladesh as an emerging economic power house. But we are not to determine how and when this status will be turned into reality i.e. when this sun of economic power house will reach to its zenith. How this target will be achieved?

In the 1980s, Bangladesh, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore — these countries were in a single row of economic condition. But in 2011 where is our position and what about the economic situation of the other stated countries? We shall study these facts to identify strengths of the forwarded countries and weaknesses of Bangladesh. Why are we lagging behind the row? According to some critics political instability and ineptitude of our politicians are the major cause of this failure. Though I do not support the argument, I am not in a position to express 100% disagreement with the statement.

Keywords: Economy of Bangladesh, Government Policy, Vision 2021
