Flow of External Resources into Bangladesh 2012-2013



"Flow of External Resources into Bangladesh" - the flagship publication of Economic Relations Division (ERD), is considered as a magnum opus in the area of government’s publications for its rich information trove. I am happy to know that ERD is publishing the thirty-sixth edition of this publication. The trends in external resources mobilization reveals a significant increase in commitment of aid by major development partners which resulted in some sort of pipeline bulge. Efforts are being made to accelerate the utilization of pipeline aid by removing procedural bottleneck and strengthening implementation monitoring by ERD, implementing agencies and Development Partners. As a result foreign aid disbursement reached a record level in FY 2012-13.  At the same time, a prudent borrowing policy focusing on mobilizing grants and concessional loans continues to be the keystone of the country’s foreign aid policy thereby enabling external debt of Bangladesh to stay within a comfort zone.         

2. In order to make the document more user friendly, the overview is restructured by organizing it into five different parts containing information on resource flow, selected macro-economic indicators and analysis of external debt portfolio.  In the process, overview of the book has been made more meaningful and attractive with colored graphs. In addition, methodology of compilation of data and executive summary of this document offer greater clarity of understanding of the data presented.  I am pretty sure that this publication will be useful to the policy makers, researchers, academics, students and other readership in their work. I hope that ERD would continue publishing this document and at the same time make every effort to improve its scope, analysis and presentation of data.

3. Resource flows from multilateral and bilateral development partners and servicing of loan information of government is presented in this publication. A summary data on borrowings from International Monetary Fund (IMF), external debts of State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) and grants extended to the Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) are also recorded at aggregate levels in this book. Public debt relating to defense establishment and private sector debt remain outside the remit of the publication. The publication is put together on the basis of information available with ERD and supplemented, where necessary, by the reports of the development partners, project directors, the Bangladesh Bank and other corporate bodies. Some figures shown in the report may need to be revised, based on feedback from the development partners.

4. The external aid flow book is an outcome of hard work meticulously put in by officers and staff of Foreign Aid Budget and Accounts (FABA) Wing of ERD. Suggestions for further improvement of the publication are most welcome. If any discrepancy comes to the notice of the readership or any clarification is needed, ERD may please be contacted at www.erd.gov.bd.
