Deep Dive: How Bangladesh got left out of the Asian growth story

Startup Snapshot

Technology

Tucked away between Myanmar and Nepal, lying along the eastern border of India, is the little-known country of Bangladesh. Due to an unfortunate string of natural disasters, acts of extremism, and bad press coverage some 30 to 40 years ago, most people might think that the country is a place of widespread poverty and poor infrastructure. In reality, within Bangladesh lies the makings of a startup haven. But despite its strong economic fundamentals, the country seems to have been snubbed by investors who only have eyes for India and Southeast Asia. On this episode of Deep Dive, Tech in Asia journalist Melissa Goh discusses why Bangladesh has been left out of the Asian growth story and how the country might be able to catch up with the rest of the region.
