A vibrant private sector bears the real secrets of Bangladesh's development success in recent years, said Finance Minister AMA Muhith, sounding upbeat about the country's capability of graduating.
"The real secret of Bangladesh's success is that we have some very good companies and very good businesses who can really take it upon themselves," Muhith said while speaking at the 25th anniversary of a local conglomerate, ACI Group.
The Finance Minister also mentioned that the country's consistent economic progress in recent years means the country is poised to fulfill the criteria for graduating from LDC status this March.
"If we can maintain this consistent growth for another ten years, we will be able to materialize the dream of a Golden Bengal," he told his business audience.
Speaking on the occasion, Chairman of ACI Group M Anis Ud Dowla said his company is committed to remaining an active partner in Bangladesh's development.
