About the Book:

Bangladesh has gathered rich experience in planned development with the implementation of
five five-year plans and one two-year plan over the last three decades. With a gap of nine years during
which period the country implemented poverty reduction strategy papers, Bangladesh returned to
the five year development planning framework with the preparation of the Sixth Five Year Plan (201 1-
2015) within the framework of the Perspective Plan (2010-2021) and keeping the goals of the Vision
2021 in view. The preparation of the Sixth Plan necessitated the formulation of the technical framework for finalizing the plan strategies and identifying the desirable development path that would lead to fulfilling its objectives. Several background studies were also undertaken for generating quantitative/qualitative benchmark values and targets for relevant indicators of the Plan and fill-in critical knowledge gaps. The Bangladesh institute of Development Studies (BIDS) was assigned to conduct the background studies and develop the technical framework of the Plan for which renowned economists and development practitioners in the relevant fields were engaged to complete the tasks within the stipulated time period. These studies provided valuable information/inputs which significantly contributed towards drafting the Sixth Five Year Plan. The studies attempt to spell out
a reform strategy and agenda for agriculture food security, industrialization, poverty reduction, social
deployment, sustainable management of natural resources and other development issues in Bangladesh in the light of current conditions as well as past experience.

The present volume provides a reconstructed input-Output Table of the Bangladesh economy for
2006/07 using the existing 2000Table and supplemented with information on production,
consumption and macro-economic aggregates. In addition to capturing the structure of the
Bangladesh economy, the Table served as a consistent data base to construct the Social
Accounting Matrix and the dynamic CGE model for the Bangladesh economy.
It is expected that the input-Output Table presented in this volume will be useful for the research
community, policymakers, and others interested in understanding the economic structure of the
Bangladesh economy.
