Dhaka, May 11 ( UNI) Finance Minister of Bangladesh AHM Mustafa Kamal on Saturday said Bangladesh will be among the top 20 growing economies of the world by 2024.

Bangladesh’s economy would then contribute 0.9 per cent of those economies, the Finance Minister said quoting a recent analysis by US-based Bloomberg.

Mr Kamal said this when a delegation of the World Bank led by its Acting Country Director Dandan Chen met him at his ERD office.

He said that by 2024, Bangladesh would make important contributions in the global economic growth.

He said that Bloomberg made the analysis based on the recent global economic projection by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

"Our goal is to turn Bangladesh as a developed country by 2041. But, the pace of progress that we’re witnessing now, we can expect that we’ll be able to attain our target before the time-frame. Bangladesh will soon be included in the list of G-20 countries, he added.

World Bank Acting Country Director Dandan Chen praised Bangladesh’s economic progress, ongoing support to the forcibly displaced Rohingyas, steps towards financial sector reforms, women’s empowerment and generating employments for them.

She also hoped that the relations of the World Bank with Bangladesh would be further strengthened.
