The Bangladesh country profile summarizes USAID's development assistance programs throughout the country. 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. 

USAID/Bangladesh, through the Feed the Future Bangladesh Rice and Diversified Crops (RDC) activity, has developed a business model in partnership with U.S. and Bangladesh private companies to ensure farmers’ access to high-yielding Pioneer USA hybrid maize and rice seeds.  In Bangladesh, the government typically controls much of the research, release, and sale of seed, which hampers innovation and access to premier seeds. Tackling this challenge, the USAID-funded activity partnered with a U.S. agricultural company, Corteva Agriscience (which markets Pioneer brand seeds) in late 2019, through their Bangladeshi agent, Petrochem Group (PCL).
