Expo 2020 Dubai: Bangladesh to showcase economic success

The story of 'indomitable Bangladesh' that has risen out of war, poverty and natural disaster to mark an impressive socio-economic development is an awe-inspiring model for other underdeveloped countries participating at the Expo 2020, Bangladeshi ambassador to the UAE, Mohammad Abu Zafar told in an exclusive interview. The Bangladesh Pavilion located at the sustainability district will showcase the country's mega infrastructural projects, women empowerment, climate resilience, inclusive industrial policies, agrarian development and its growing pharmaceutical industry that have catapulted the South Asian nation on the path of rapid economic progress. "Bangladesh is in the process of graduating from a Least Developed Country (LDC) to a developing country. We have worked some miracles by pursing inclusive and sustainable economic policy. Other countries can take a leaf out our example," said the envoy. "This is an Expo where people from all over the world will be visiting. We are going to showcase our story and how far we have come in the last 50 years." Bangladesh is celebrating its 50th year of independence this year that coincides with the UAE's 50th year.
