The plan is the first step towards truly realizing the values on which Bangladesh was founded
What makes a government truly effective is its acknowledgement of the problems which a nation is facing currently, and generating long-term plans which aim to provide sustainable solutions to these problems.
This is reflected in the ruling party’s commendable “Delta Plan-2100” which sets clear goals for the nation to achieve over the course of this coming century, with checkpoints along the way which take into account our progress in various sectors, and allow us to gauge our overall development as a nation.
The vision of the Delta Plan, according to the prime minister, is to “build a prosperous Bangladesh through adopting compact, comprehensive, and effective strategies,” further reflected in its three higher-level goals and six delta-specific goals, which include the aim to eliminate extreme poverty and attain higher-middle-income status, among others, all of which would be impossible through the implementation of short-term actions.
To envision a Bangladesh far enough into the future, far beyond most of our time here on Earth, is inspirational to say the least, and takes into the account the lives and livelihoods of the several generations to come.
The plan, which has been segmented into 17 five-year-plans and further into 80 projects to be completed by 2030, is the first step towards truly realizing the values on which Bangladesh was founded, and bringing into reality the dream of a Sonar Bangla.
The time now, then, is to see implementation across the board, from all branches of the government, which can only be achieved through taking a no-nonsense approach to the problem and eliminating elements which only serve to obstruct the smooth and efficient process through which we will be achieving our goals.
