Bangladesh an inspiration to South Asian peers

Bangladesh’s incredible economic rise over the years has become a source of inspiration for other south Asian nations as the country has already shown its resilience even amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, a time when the global economy is struggling to survive, said Binod Chaudhary, founder of CG Corp Global.

Despite all the bureaucratic and political challenges in South Asia, Bangladesh has had a stunning economic journey.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) had even projected that Bangladesh would witness economic growth of 3.8 per cent, the highest among its south Asian peers, during the pandemic time, said Chaudhary, who says that Bangladesh is like a home away from home for him.

Over the last 30 years, Chaudhary has not only made numerous business ties with the country, but a lot of personal relationships as well.

He mentioned one name in particular, being that of the late Latifur Rahman, a noted Bangladeshi business icon and former chairman and CEO of Transcom Group. Chaudhary had worked with Rahman in various capacities across South Asia.
