The Government of Bangladesh has set an ambitious goal of becoming a middle income country by 2021. To achieve middle income status, it will require an average annual GDP growth of 7.5% - 8%. In order to achieve this growth rate, Bangladesh will need a well-diversified and vibrant private sector with significant potential for growth. Studies show, faster growth will depend on a few primary factors: (i) increased investment, (ii) faster human capital accumulation, (iii) enhanced productivity growth, and (iv) increased outward orientation. A key strategy based on these factors would be to focus on growth-oriented and income generating priority sectors outside of the Ready Made Garment (RMG) industry. USAID aims to support private sector development in Bangladesh, facilitate investment in sectors beyond the RMG sector, and generate growth in the emerging areas of the economy with the aim of generating employment and increasing income.

The purpose of this activity is to provide USAID/Bangladesh (also referred to as 'the mission'), its partners and other stakeholders with a comprehensive assessment of priority sectors in Bangladesh and identify opportunities for USAID investment. The study will also help inform USAID/Bangladesh’s current activities as well as future program designs and strategy.

The estimated LOE necessary to provide the two primary deliverables is expected to be 100 days, from Sept 02, 2018
