Country Brief - Bangladesh 2017

Bangladesh continues to see robust growth, largely due to substantial remittances and higher exports. While the low income country has made good progress towards its Millennium Development Goals, significant development challenges remain, and a large proportion of the population lives in poverty. Only a small share of its youth is progressing to higher education, yet the vast size and young age of the country’s population presents strong opportunities for private overseas providers, particularly in the field of e-Learning. These opportunities may be strengthened by government goals to increase IT coverage, broad quality concerns with domestic provision, and a recent law that permits foreign universities to develop. Weak infrastructure, a poor regulatory and business environment and frequent political unrest remain obstacles to investment.
