The vision of developing Bangladesh into a Sonar Bangla or Golden Bengal was laid out by the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is the torchbearer of the dream foreseen by the Father of the Nation. Led by prudent government policies and driven by a vibrant, productive workforce, the country has achieved high economic growth in the last ten years and is on course to attain many of the targets set under the government’s Vision 2021.
To keep this momentum, the country is now working towards the long-term target of becoming a developed country by the year 2041 while also focusing on achieving the UN mandated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Therefore, graduation from the LDC status, per se, is not the final destination, but rather another milestone towards the vision of becoming a developed country by 2041.
We want to celebrate the 100th year of our independence in 2071 with our heads held high as an innovative, prosperous nation. And we want to build up a safe delta for all our citizens through a green and sustainable development envisioned in the ‘Delta Plan 2100’. By achieving all these development milestones over the next decades, the dreamland of the Father of the Nation will turn into a true Golden Bengal.
