As we look to the future of development in Bangladesh, it is important to be realistic about the challenges. But it also is important to remember the distance which has been travelled – and the building blocks which are already in place. I think, for example, of the strides which have been made here in controlling population growth, developing export trade, establishing micro-credit programmes, improving early childhood care, extending education, especially for women, and fighting corruption – in addition to doubling per capita GDP over the past two decades. The challenge now is to make development both sustainable and equitable, so that it fairly benefits people of all classes, cultures and regions.
