According to the resolution, Bangladesh’s journey of the last five decades from a war-torn poor country to a fast-growing economy after independence has been remarkable. According to World Bank data, the per capita GDP of Bangladeshis in 2021 stood at $2,457, which now exceeds many neighboring countries. During the Great Liberation War in 1971, the economy of Bangladesh was 9 billion dollars. In the last 5 decades it has increased to 450 billion dollars. Average life expectancy increased from 47 years to 73 years. The education rate has also exceeded 75 percent. Sheikh Hasina’s leadership has been praised by mentioning these achievements as incredible.

It has also been said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Bangladesh has achieved remarkable progress in various sectors including food production, disaster tolerance, poverty alleviation, development of health and education sector, empowerment of women. A liberal Muslim society exists in Bangladesh. Bangladesh’s achievements in combating extremism are commendable. The bill also states that the people of the country have always wanted to maintain support for democracy and the rule of law rather than accepting autocratic rule.

Praising Bangladesh for sheltering Rohingyas, the resolution said Bangladesh has sheltered more than 1 million Rohingyas facing genocide in Myanmar. The United States is supporting Bangladesh with over two billion dollars worth of humanitarian aid to deal with this crisis. Apart from this, Bangladesh is in the leadership seat in UN peacekeeping operations. Bangladesh has received the praise of the American people for deploying the largest number of peacekeepers in different countries of the world. United States and Bangladesh – both countries are exchanging development experiences at the people-to-people and government-to-government level.

Taking into consideration these situations and events, this resolution has been raised with the aim of appreciating and recognizing the socio-economic development of Bangladesh. In the bill, the United States expressed its sincere determination to be a constructive partner of Bangladesh in achieving mutual economic, social and national security goals now and in the future.
