Structural transformation, inequality dynamics, and inclusive growth in Bangladesh

Selim Raihan () and Sunera Saba Khan

No wp-2020-44, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: The Bangladesh economy has undergone significant structural changes over the last four decades. The share of agriculture in GDP has declined, while the significance of industry and service sectors has increased. These structural changes have been associated with persistent challenges such as lack of diversification, poor working conditions, low productivity, and high degree of informality, obstructing the progress towards inclusive economic growth.
