CPD organizes,“Fifty years of Bangladesh: Retrospect and Prospect

The Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) is organizing a four-day virtual international conference titled, “Fifty years of Bangladesh: Retrospect and Prospect,” which kicks off on Monday.

Through this event, CPD hopes to publish reports and books on Bangladesh’s 50-year journey, the progress it has made, and scope for further improvement. 

CPD Chairman Professor Rehman Sobhan will set the stage by delivering the keynote speech of the first session, representatives of the think tank said at a virtual press briefing on Sunday. 

The conference will host eight sessions in total, where expert panellists will discuss the economic situation of the country as it stands after 50 years, and also the progress and the shortcomings of the country’s political, social, and cultural scenarios. 

“Economic progress not only has impacts on people’s financial capabilities, but also on political and societal factors, said Professor Rounaq Jahan, distinguished fellow of CPD. 

“We must also discuss the flaws and the limitations, otherwise moving forward in the future could become very challenging,” she added while speaking at the briefing. 

Another session, titled “State, Society, Politics,” will also be conducted on the first day. Panellists in this are expected to discuss the political scenario of Bangladesh and its impacts on the society and economy as a whole.

The third session on “Bangladesh’s Economic Transformation,” will be held on the second day, followed by another session titled “Towards a Just Society.”

On the third day of the conference, there will also be two sessions, one on social transitions and another on culture. 

The seventh session, titled “Costs and Challenges of Development,” will be held on the final day, followed by the last session of the conference, titled Bangladesh in a Changing World Order.

The panellists attending this conference will participate from various parts of the world to provide their expert opinions. 

Dr Fahmida Khatun, executive director of CPD, also spoke at the briefing.Dhaka Tribune
