1972 to 2024—Many achievements of Bangladesh in these 52 years. A completely war-torn country, many problems, many setbacks, extreme poverty, famine, overcoming hundreds of adversities, Henry Kissinger's bottomless basket adage proves false, Bangladesh is now a lower-middle income country. The credibility of government statistics is questionable, but there is no doubt that poverty and extreme poverty have declined. In the last 52 years, a large section of the population has been lifted out of poverty.

The nightmare that happened every year in the month of Kartika in Rangpur region is also gone. Although extreme poverty still remains, sadly, there has been no actual famine in the country since 1974. The extreme aid dependency of the 1980s is now a far cry. According to a PricewaterhouseCoopers study, Bangladesh is now the 31st largest economy in the world in terms of purchasing power, and will be 23rd in 2050. Bangladesh's export earnings barely crossed $1 billion in 1986-87, reaching nearly $60 billion in 2022.

Bangladesh dreams of transitioning from lower middle to upper middle in the coming decade, and becoming a developed country in the next decade. Bangladesh has a lot of success in the social field as well. Bangladesh has achieved amazing success in the implementation of MDG. Bangladesh is the only Muslim-majority country, outside of Turkey, to achieve gender parity in primary school enrollment. Bangladesh ranks 72nd in the gender inequality ranking, above India or Sri Lanka.
