CPD, under the Independent Review of Bangladesh’s Development (IRBD) programme, carried out the regular exercise of reviewing the macroeconomic performance and anticipation of key emerging developments during FY2011-12, and released three interim reviews. This volume contains the third and final report that was released in June 2012. It addresses a number of important and necessary updates of key macroeconomic performance indicators. However, the main value of the present volume lies in three other core sections which discuss three themes of key importance for the Bangladesh economy at this present juncture: namely investment, employment and reforms, with the objective to take an in depth look at the basic structural challenges confronting the Bangladesh economy. The present review also contains a note on the state of crop production and its implications for food security. The current volume also includes a set of proposals for the national budget FY2012-13, as an Annex.
