Beijing +20 National review, Bangladesh

The period 1995 to 2014 has been a period of economic growth led by increased agricultural production,
exports, and remittances from international migration, lowering of dependency on external aid and a
growing productive population. It has also been a period of increasing vulnerability to climatic change
and environmental degradation and disasters as well as economic shock due to 1997 Asian economic
and 2007-2008 global economic crisis. Politically, since the return to democracy in 1990, the
Government has gone through democratic transitions from one political Government to another with
regular elections at both national and local levels. In spite of changes in political Government there has
been consistency in both macro-economic and social development policies which have enabled
remarkable progress in human development.
