Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Bangladesh became a lower middle-income country in 2015. Its gross domestic product growth rate averaged 7.0% during fiscal year 2015-2019 and recovered to 7.1% by 2022 despite the impact of the coronavirus disease pandemic (COVID-19). The income per capita has reached $2,793 in 2022. The country has made phenomenal progress in the reduction of poverty with the population living with less than $1.9 per day reaching 5.6% by 2022 from 34.2% in 2000. It has adopted Vision 2041 to continue its trajectory of economic growth and become an upper middle-income country by 2031 by improving productive capacity, promoting competitiveness, and strengthening resilience to the impacts of climate change, disasters, and pandemic. Bangladesh's graduation from the Least Developed Country (LDC) on one hand may lead to trade-related challenges due to the loss of specific LDC market access provisions, special and differential treatment, and flexibilities, while on the other hand it will also improve credit ratings for attracting foreign investments and creating development opportunities.
