International Monetary Fund will continue support for Bangladesh to accomplish its aspiration to become a developed, prosperous and higher income nation by the year of 2041.
‘Bangladesh has aspiration to become a developed, prosperous and higher income country by 2041, and IMF will continue its support,’ said the lending agency’s deputy managing director Antoinette Monsio Sayeh while paying a call on prime minister Sheikh Hasina at her official residence Ganabhaban.
Antoinette Monsio said that IMF cherished the long standing partnership with Bangladesh, and she came here to further strengthen the relationship.
Prime minister’s speech writer Md Nazrul Islam briefed reporters after the meeting.
The prime minister said that Bangladesh did not want any assistance from the IMF for bail-out, rather the country has wanted the support as a pre-emptive measure.
‘We don’t’ want any bail-out. Our this programme is not a bail-out,’ she added.
