      However, labour productivity in the agricultural sector remains very low. Because of a lack of competitiveness, agricultural goods do not figure significantly among Bangladesh’s exports, and the country has been a net importer of food. Furthermore, new employment creation in the sector has been shrinking significantly in recent years. India's growth has been impressive in recent years but this is a country whose development is hampered by endemic structural problems. India requires significant investment in infrastructure, manufacturing and agriculture for the rapid growth rates of the last fifteen to twenty years to be sustained. Articles to read.

      Bangladesh’s economic freedom score is , making its economy the nd freest in the Index. Its overall score has increased by point, led by a higher score for property rights. The low level of complexity in the economy means that their garment sector has few linkages to other more complex manufacturing industries and this – over the medium term – will hold back the potential to reach significantly higher per capita incomes. The result has been a surge in Bangladesh apparel production and exports.

Bangladesh is an interesting country to study for two reasons. First, the evidence on the determinants of firm productivity in low-income countries is rare.4 Most productivity studies have focused on middle income countries in Latin America or Eastern Europe with available data.
