U.S. Relations With Bangladesh
The United States and Bangladesh cooperate closely on a range of issues, including economics, security, governance, and development. U.S.-Bangladesh ties go beyond the government-to-government level: our people-to-people and commercial relationships complement and expand upon the work of our officials. At our last annual partnership dialogue with Bangladesh in June 2019, our two governments reaffirmed their enduring partnership, highlighting close cooperation on security, development, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, and counterterrorism. The two governments agreed to continue to work closely together to advance a shared vision of a free, open, inclusive, peaceful, and secure Indo-Pacific region.
Bilateral Economic Relations
Bangladesh has achieved decades of impressive economic growth, with expectations of 2019 breaking eight percent annual GDP growth. The United States is proud to be a partner in Bangladesh’s development success.
U.S. Assistance to Bangladesh
The United States has invested billions of dollars to improve the lives of Bangladeshis and Bangladesh is the largest recipient of U.S. assistance in Asia outside of Afghanistan and Pakistan. U.S. assistance fosters engagement with the Government of Bangladesh – helping to grow more food, build more roads, and train more skilled teachers, health care providers, and soldiers.
