Bangladesh to be a ‘growth outperformer’ in 2016-25


Bangladesh has been picked up as a growth outperformer for the next decade riding on low commodity prices, demographic dividend and expected measures aimed at improving the business environment. London-based BMI Research has picked six countries — Bangladesh, Ethiopia, India, Mexico, Pakistan and the Philippines — that will be growth performers in 2016-2025. The countries “will rapidly climb the GDP country rankings between now and 2025,” it said. The six countries are expected to gain an average of 6.5 places each in global GDP rankings by 2025, with Ethiopia (+12) and Bangladesh (+11) making the most gains, said BMI Research, which is owned by the Fitch Group. Bangladesh is the 47th largest economy in the world in terms of gross domestic product, according to the World Bank’s 2015 ranking.
