WhiteBoard promotes evidence-based, incisive discussion, as well as constructive debate. It covers a range of topics including economy, governance, market-insights, gender, development and technology.
Why do we do it
Bangladesh is growing rapidly and confronting new challenges, with young people at the helm. It is set to be among the world’s top 30 economies by 2030. However, there is a lack of data-driven and coherent analysis on what is happening in the country.
Meanwhile, the world is changing fast. In the era of big data, with the Fourth Industrial Revolution interacting with global development needs, it is crucial to understand what role we can play. In this context, WhiteBoard commentaries unite innovation with reflection, and historical context with future possibilities.
