About Bangladesh

The United States and Bangladesh enjoy a warm and wide-ranging friendship, driven by common interests and shared values. As a moderate, secular and tolerant democracy that is at peace with its neighbors, Bangladesh is a role model for less developed countries in the South Asia region.

Bangladesh is committed to becoming a middle-income country by 2021, its 50th year of independence. USAID assistance supports this goal by promoting democratic institutions and practices, economic opportunity, effective health and education services, food security, responsiveness to climate change, and preparedness and response to natural disasters.
