A path to economic resilience: Insights from the PRI-CDRM paper "Bangladesh's domestic resource mobilisation - imperatives and a roadmap"

Policy brief State Effectiveness and State

This policy brief highlights a strategic roadmap to boost domestic revenue mobilisation in Bangladesh.

  • Bangladesh currently has one of the lowest ratios of government revenues to GDP in the world.
  • It is imperative that Bangladesh takes steps to increase revenues significantly to ensure fiscal stability, fund much-needed investment that supports economic growth, and increase the provision of public education, healthcare, and social protection.
  • The PRI Study Centre on Domestic Resource Mobilisation has recently published a paper titled “Bangladesh’s Domestic Resource Mobilisation: Imperatives and A Roadmap”. Based on that study, this policy brief highlights a strategic roadmap that the government might follow to increase revenues.
