The Contribution of Remittance In The GDP of Bangladesh

Bangladesh is a small agricultural country of South Asia with a total area of 144,000 sq km, still can’t get rid of the bad condition of being one of the developing countries, due to miserable poverty, huge corruption, high illiteracy rate, and a huge population of 144.43 million (2006)­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­BBS.­­­­­­­ Moreover natural disasters such as seasonal flood, cyclones, draughts, sidar etc. constantly pursue its lot every year, which break the backbone of the economy and aggravate future planning. With high inflation, high price of daily goods and unemployment rate economy is totally disbursed.

If we look deeply to the GDP, which is the major indicator of an economy of a country, shows that for a long time, Bangladesh economy was backward. The years after independence, the total size of GDP, Per Capita GDP and the growth rates was small. The condition improved from the beginning of 1990. Yet, still the growth trend and the structural changes of GDP in Bangladesh are not satisfactory. Many problems are responsible for this unsatisfactory GDP. These are the shortage of domestic food production, narrow structure of exports, increasing growth rate of imports, failure in the invocation of much Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), a defective banking system with cumulative interest of loans, continuous loss in the public enterprises, poor infrastructure, inefficient taxation, high inflation rate, political instability and the serious deterioration of law and order situation. If these problems are solved, dynamic changes will come in the percentages of GDP.

A concise discussion of Bangladesh economic growth will help to understand about GDP of it. Economic growth of Bangladesh is compiled of three main sectors. These are:-

  • Agriculture.
  • Industry.
  • Service.

In recent times, Services is the largest sector in the percentage contribution to GDP. It includes all services activities. It consists of trade service, construction, transport, storage and communication, housing, public administration and defense, education, health, financial intermediates such as bank, insurance and other social and personal activities.

    Dear Sir
    From 1972 after independent many of the Bangladeshi Citizens started to established industries investing family resources & adopting innovative technology as self earner and to create job opportunity for million of unemployed person and to achieve economic freedom. And Government also started to help these growing PRIVATE SECTOR INDUSTRIES having fund from International Loan giving Agencies, through different Bank. From 1989.
    But the Industrial Entrepreneurs becomes victims of deep rooted conspiracy . The Bank Official refrain themselves from ascertaining production capacity of imported machineries and to provide required working capital loan in time extending total non-cooperation, negligence etc.
    Due to Such conspiracy & negligence’s Non Banking Activities of Bank Official & Policy Maker, most of the these Industries became inoperative & have lost their Cash Capital, Expatriate Capabilities, and helpless victims of such deep rooted conspiracy having similarity to :
    In 1992 &1996 the Sick Industries Rehabilitation Cell were formed by GOVERNMENT OF BANGLADESH & have Identified and Registered these Industries as SICK INDUSTRIES declaring not as defaulter but victims of Violation of Contract, Negligence, Fraudulent Activities, Malpractices of Bank Officials including Policy Maker due to lack of Accountability, which are no more hidden matter . But unfortunately the SICK INDUSTRIES REHABILITATION CELL have been closed . .
    Industrial Entrepreneur of Bangladesh are completely deprive of Legal Right even due to enactment of BANK RUPTCY ACT of 1997 and ARTHA RIN ACT of 1989 which were amended on 2003 and 2007 treating the INDUSTRIAL ENTRPRENEURS OF PRIVATE SECTOR as like as SLAVE of Primitive Age.
    But these laws are not applicable in Nationalized or Government Sector
    The Owner of Industries under Private Sector can not claim any Compensation or Set Off on the Suit filed by the Bank Official or Loan Giving Agencies FOR VIOLATION OF CONTRACT, NEGLEGIENCES, MALPRACTICES, including fraudulent activities As a result NUMBER OF SICK / DISTRESSED are increasing in Every Year due to lack of accountability of Bank Official due to restriction as per SECTION NO 18 ( 2) & ( 3 ) , rather the Bank Official , other Loan Giving Agencies have been allowed indemnity in all respect . These have been done to hide out existing high profile malpractices and corruption as per opinion of Expert Personals
    In short Industrial Entrepreneur in Bangladesh have no legal right to protect themselves from the oppression of Bank Official & Policy Maker which are no more hidden matter. Bank official have given Indemnity for Violation of Contract , Negligence Malpractices & Fraudulent Activities Industrial Entrepreneurs can file a separate suit for compensation in separate civil Court creating more complicacy for life long litigation WITH OF NO RESULT due to restriction to obstruct or resist any order / decree of ARTHA RIN ACT / COURT by any other DECREE OR ORDER OF OTHER COURT or even of by HIGHER COURT THE RIGHT OF EQUITY OF LAW HAVE COMPLETELY BEEN DENIED TO THE INDUSTRIAL ENTREPRENEUR OF PRIVAT SECTOR as per Section 12, 12 ( khan ) 18 ( 2 ) & (3 ) 19, 20, 21, 34,40, 41, 42, 44, 47 and 50 of ARTHA RIN ACT.

    And similarly the Door of Higher Court have also been closed for the Industries Owner imposing terms for advance deposit of 50 % of decreetal amount by the ARTHA RIN COURT which are not applicable upon any Bank or Loan Giving Agencies. These are few example of oppressive laws how the citizen in Bangladesh are repressed, depriving legal right by the policy maker miss -guiding the innocent or ignorant vast majority of Citizen of Bangladesh to protect the interest of vested group
