It is imperative that the entire country focuses on ensuring holistic growth and development

It is very encouraging to hear Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina speak of the need to develop Bangladesh’s villages and rural areas in a planned and systematic manner, ensuring all basic civic amenities during their development.

While Bangladesh’s development trajectory -- especially over the last decade or so -- is nothing if not admirable, there is legitimate concern that Bangladesh’s economic growth may be concentrated within the concrete walls of its capital city.

To that end, it is good to see that the government is wary of this issue and intends to address it.

However, what must be ensured, now that this problem has been identified, is that the work does not stop at this stage. 

Too often, there have been cases of identifying problems within the country -- and also the intention to address these problems -- without a concrete plan of action to prioritize, address, and solve these problems before they become too burdensome for the economy at large. 

Indeed, with the PM emphasizing the need to ensure food security, medical facilities, education, and jobs while developing our rural areas, it is up to the relevant stakeholders to pay heed to her words.

Bangladesh is entering a historic period in its time as an independent nation. It is imperative that the entire country focuses on ensuring holistic growth and development, so that all people of Bangladesh -- be they the urban population or rural population -- can experience prosperity and a higher standard of living.
