Bangladesh
What appears is that both parties operate with a mindset, at least in theory, that they will promote liberal market principles with democracy. Both parties support theories of democratisation on paper.  
 

Bangladesh has been assessed as one of the nations most vulnerable to the impacts of a changing climate, and indeed, is already experiencing some of these impacts.

 

Protect this magical land, because we all need our own stories and our own personal revelations. Protect it, because numerous great stories are yet to unfold.

 
When you’re looking out for a nation, the attitude displayed by the prime minister is the sort of outlook you expect. She would leave New York with both her own image and that of Bangladesh enhanced.  
 

Bangladeshi movies, especially commercial ones, have a special place in the lives of all those who grew up in this city in the decades after liberation. Featuring top-class actors, purely commercial ventures like Mintu Amaar Naam, Barud, Johnny, CID, Toofan, Pagla Raja, Love in Singapore, Challenge, and many others often did not have fully original plots.

 
Bangladesh, long been called a secular Muslim-majority nation, has seen a surge of terrorist atrocities over the past couple of months. Several secular bloggers, academics, and religious minorities have been hacked to death by radical believers.  
 

There is no ready-made policy directive to solve this problem. One thing is clear: We need to speed up the inclusive growth process. For that, the governance process needs to be far more simplistic and nimble, and at the same time transparent and credible. Although, how such a model can he achieved is not yet certain.

 
When we talk about security, we are focusing on three aspects: People, investments, and assets. The security of people includes people working in a particular territory or district, working at a particular location for a particular employer, and also people travelling from other locations to live and work in a certain locality for a certain reason.  
 

The BNP is an important stake-holder in Bangladeshi politics. The party was formed in 1978, but its founder, the late General Ziaur Rahman, who had ruled the country from 1976 until his murder in the 1981 military coup.

 

A recent research study “Bangladesh: Looking Beyond Garments” conducted by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) has revealed that the positive economic turnaround in Bangladesh is largely due the rising presence of women in the workplace.
