About the event

Bangladesh had the fastest growing economy in Asia in 2019 of +8%. That was on top of a decade of 6% or more sustained growth. GDP is expected to grow by around 2% this year, highlighting the country’s natural resilience to shocks and the underlying strength of the economy. Bangladesh has 170 million people, 40% of whom are below 25. It has a growing middle class that is powering domestic consumption. Bangladesh is a largely untapped market with great potential for UK firms who can see past the challenges.
