Bangladesh

Improving the skills and productivity of our workforce is a major policy issue for Bangladesh as we strive to compete in the highly globalised world of the 21st century, and there is a general consensus that improving the quality of our education, and access to it, is the key to achieving that.

 

The Myanmar military has consistently used the pretext of the August 25 uprising by ARSA for their crackdown on the Rohingya, which amounts to nothing less than ethnic cleansing.

An array of challenges face Bangladesh today, ranging from urgent to enduring and entrenched problems, from the refugee crisis to rampant corruption at all levels of government and even society, from militancy to climate vulnerability.

 

Myanmar has tentatively agreed to take back the Rohingya under certain conditions. But this is nowhere near enough.
