Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal hopes that the country's per capita income will increase to 3,089 US dollars in the next financial year.

A meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Virtual Economic Affairs and Public Procurement was held under the chairmanship of the Finance Minister at 12:30 pm on Sunday, January 30, he told reporters after the meeting.

Where the International Monetary Fund (IMF) recently projected a slowdown in global growth, how Bangladesh hope, and on what basis its per capita income would increase, Asked about this type of question minister replied, "Last year, our GDP growth rate was 5.43 percent. This year, our GDP growth will be 7.2."

"At this point, our GDP will be 455 billion," he said.

If we shred this 455 billion with the population we have, the per capita income will increase to 2,785 dollar. This is our assessment this year. Hopefully, in the next financial year, the size of our GDP will touch the milestone of half a trillion.
