A tech revolution helps boost Bangladesh’s development
Not long ago, in 2005, one out of every four people in Bangladesh would go to bed hungry. By the end of 2017, however, it is projected that less than one person in every 10 would be skipping a meal each day.

Bangladesh has reduced poverty from 40 percent in 2005 to 24.3 in 2016. It is only proof of the veracity of our measures that we continue to progress beyond the Millennium Development Goal deadline of 2015 to halve poverty and hunger.

With over 67 million internet cheap and available connections, Bangladesh has spawned a wave of tech-savvy youth whose initiatives are contributing to Bangladesh’s progress towards the SDGs besides the government innovations and interventions.
