Action Aid, Bangladesh
A training workshop jointly supported by Action Aid, Bangladesh and the Foreign Ministry of The Royal Netherlands Government was held.at the Press Institute of Bangladesh (PIB) in the city on Thursday. Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu was present in the programme as the chief guest. While speaking Inu said that gender disparity and women's household work should be accounted for in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). "If that is accounted for then the GDP would be much higher," he said. The minister said that by 2030 Bangladesh would achieve gender equality. The work women performed at home if done outside is paid for therefore it does not make any sense overlooking it in economic data. He also called for inclusion of all economic activities done in the informal sector in the GDP accounting to give a full and comprehensive view of the real size of the economy.Inu called upon journalists to report on the matter and highlight the issue. The Director General of PIB, Shah Md Alamgir presided over the function. The minister thanked the organizer for upholding such a training session and felt that similar programmes should organize more frequently to sensitize the people and policy-makers on the issue.
