Bangladesh and The World Bank: A 50 Year Partnership

Bangladesh has an inspiring story of growth and development. From being one of the poorest countries at independence, it is now among the world’s fastest growing economies. The World Bank has been a proud partner in this remarkable journey, through knowledge sharing and financing. With $15 billion ongoing commitment, Bangladesh has the largest program of the International Development Association (IDA)—the World Bank Group’s concessional financing arm, and the World Bank is the country’s largest external development partner.
