The relationship between Bangladesh and the United States has played a vital role in fostering economic growth and regional stability. However, recently, the relationship is hitting rocky waters more often than used to. The tinges of the sour relationship are becoming evident as the US is taking some unilateral steps which is unexpected for a long-term partnership. To safeguard their long-term interests, both nations must prioritize open dialogue, respect each other’s sovereignty, and avoid actions that strain the relationship.

The announcement of ‘Universal Pension Plan’ which is due to commence in 2028, is a significant step for our journey towards a developed nation with larger social welfare benefits.
