Quarterly Economic Update - Bangladesh
Asian Development Bank | March 2010
The lagged effects of the global economic crisis and acute power and energy shortages have affected Bangladesh's short-term growth prospects. The decline in exports and sluggish investment response, along with the moderated growth of remittance inflows (affecting private consumption) are the contributing factors. Inflation in recent months picked up with accelerating international oil and food-grain prices. Excess liquidity in the domestic banking system also contributed. Although an increasing number of import letters of credit (L/Cs) are being opened, signaling an increase in business activity, a full recovery from the effects of the global economic crisis is likely to be slow.
