GDP growth would be higher than govt’s estimate: Kamal

BSS, Dhaka
GDP growth would be higher than govt’s estimate: Kamal

Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal today said the GDP growth of the country would be even higher than the government’s target, not only the World Bank’s projection.

“Amid the recent pace of the economy, we will be on top of the rest of South Asia and Southeast Asia in terms of GDP growth,” he told reporters after a virtual meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Government Purchase (CCGP).

“We believe that we will be able to achieve the projection we have made in FY 2021-22,” he added.

The government has set a target of 7.2 per cent GDP growth for the fiscal 2021-22.

The finance minister further said that in the current trend of the economy, the target for this financial year will be higher than the target of 6.1 per cent.

Replying to a question, Kamal said the government cannot accept any data if they are not released by institutions like Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) or Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies (BIDS).
