Message from the Executive Chairperson

There is a big lacuna in research and evidence-based policy making in the area of employment and labour market. CDER’s objective is to help fill this gap. Bangladesh has achieved significant economic growth and has made notable progress in the area of social development including poverty reduction. However, to achieve the status of a middle-income country along with further reduction of poverty, it will be necessary to accelerate employment generation for the growing labour force and to improve the productivity of labour.
