The EIF in Bangladesh has been working to familiarize and sensitize stakeholders on the importance of trade for inclusive, sustainable growth and poverty reduction. It has also provided a platform for local stakeholders and development partners to discuss trade development as well as providing a coordination forum for capacity building on trade mainstreaming.
Institutional capacity-building project
- End date
The goal of the project is to strengthen the national institutional capacity and develop human resources for mainstreaming trade into the national development plan as well as supporting deeper integration into the global trading system.
- The analytical work undertaken provides inputs for the trade policy as well as for Bangladesh's Seventh five‑year plan. Recommendations are centered on four pillars including: breaking into new markets; breaking into new products; improving worker and consumer welfare; and building a supportive environment.
- The trade analytics is linked to Bangladesh's Comprehensive Trade Policy that was developed with the support of the European Union and used to guide the Government and donors on trade policy implementation.
- The Diagnostic Trade Integration Study serves as a basis for mainstreaming trade into the overall development strategy and the relevant line ministries.
