Bangladesh is a least developed country (LDC) in South Asia. Economic development of the country is mainly driven by the inward flow of remittance and the export of ready-made garments (RMG). Both the areas attest to the contributions of the mass people, who are the blue-collar workers.

While the mass people are toiling relentlessly, the politicians are failing to ensure a country free from any instability that is needed much to spur economic growth.

Add to it the trend that admits of no negligence. All the governments frame few policies with so many good commitments and visions. A grand dissemination workshop is organised and the policy is launched. Then it seems they have done a great job and they have nothing to do any more about implementation of the policy or achievement of the targets under the policy. Thus the five-year tenure of a government is over. And there is the same old scenario of political bickering, street fights and tensions that push all development work to the backseat.

Keywords: Act, Industrial Policy, Law, Policy, SME Policy of Bangladesh
