Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said her government’s plan is to take the country to the rank of developed country by 2041.

She expressed her firm optimism that Bangladesh would be hunger and poverty free progressive, democratic and secular country through safeguarding good governance at all level of the society, institutionalisation of democracy and participation of mass people.

Speaking in the parliament in response to a question from treasury bench member Momtaj Begum the prime minister said Bangladesh has already come out from the status of low income country in 2015 which is the reflection of continuous development of the country.

By next three years Bangladesh would be a poverty and hunger free country, she said adding the government is working to prepare a long term development perspective plan for the year 2041.

“Our plan to take Bangladesh to the rank of the developed and prosperous country by next 23 years and by 2041 Bangladesh would be a peaceful, developed and happy country,” the prime minister said.

Sheikh Hasina said her government has expanded cooperation with the regional countries and given highest importance to build up relation with foreign country based on boosting relations in the areas of trade, commerce and investment.

Diplomatic relation with international community would be more expanded to implement the vision of 2041, she said.

The prime minister said the 7th Five year Plan has chalked out the strategies to achieve average 7.4 percent development growth which would increase to 8 percent by 2020. Poverty rate would be declined to 18.6 percent by 2020 from existing level of 22 percent, she said.

Pointing out the preparation of Bangladesh Delta Plan-2100 the prime minister said the plan has been designed for sustainable development growth in agriculture, fisheries, industries, forest, water management, public health and environment.
