The World Bank has forecast Bangladesh gross domestic product (GDP) will grow 6.8 per cent in the fiscal year 2016-17. 

In its Bangladesh Development Update on Sunday, the global lender said, “Declining export growth and fall in remittance have ended the resilience of Bangladesh’s growth prospect.” 

Such calculation comes in contrast with 7.2 per cent GDP the government projected for the same financial year.

The growth the World Bank shows for the South Asian country in its development update is a slight fall from 7.1 per cent in last year.

Bangladesh has weathered global uncertainties well aided by strengthening investment and a recovery of exports.
