"Bangladesh is approaching the timeline for graduation from the group of the LDCs as it will meet graduation eligibility for the first time in the upcoming triennial review by the United Nations’ Committee for Development Policy (CDP), in March, 2018.

The studies will constitute five chapters of an edited volume which has already been marked for publication by Routledge (London) later in the year," the statement added.
