Description The objective of the Third Capital Market Development Program (CMDP3) is the enhanced capacity and size of the capital market that is grounded on a strong legal and regulatory framework.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

ADB''s focus area in its Bangladesh public sector operations is capital and bond market development, focusing on the provision of long-term infrastructure. This is in line with the government's Sixth Five-Year Plan and the Midterm Review of ADB's Strategy 2020 priorities.

The project was envisaged to support the government's Vision 2021. Vision 2021 laid out a roadmap for Bangladesh to attain middle-income status and set target gross domestic product (GDP) annual growth of 10% by FY2021.

To attain GDP growth targets and sustainable economic growth, Bangladesh should address structural deficiencies in the capital markets by deregulating the financial system to support the real economy and promoting private sector investment to reduce the infrastructure deficit.

CMDP3 builds on the progress of the Second Capital Market Development Program (CMDP2) in 2012. The CMDP2 was aimed at stabilizing the market since the stock market debacle in December 2010 and bringing about reforms that set the foundation for sustainable market development through the passages of critical legislations, such as amendment to the Securities and Exchange Commission Act, 1993, as well as the enactment of the Demutualization Act, 2013, and the Financial Reporting Act, 2015. Despite the major stride toward strengthening its capital markets, there remained constraints. The government and ADB agreed to deepen and broaden the outreach of the second program reforms through the CMDP3.

Against this background, the CMDP3 was designed to support several structural reforms, which includes (i) strengthening enforcement capacity of Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC) and Insurance Development and Regulatory Authority (IDRA) , (ii) ensuring quality financial reporting by public companies as per international standard, (iii) facilitating demutualization of the two stock exchanges, (iv) facilitating recapitalization of intermediaries, (v) developing market infrastructure, (vi) introducing new regulations for Sukuk (Sharia-compliant bonds) and derivatives, (vii) developing mutual fund and private equity/venture capital industry, and (viii) developing more liquid government securities market.

Impact

A well-functioning financial system that supports basic capital and investment needs, as well as Bangladesh''s longer term economic objectives.
