ADAPT Implementation The Annual Development Programmer (ADAPT) for FEY 2011-12 has been projected at TX. 460 billion as 5. Percent of the GAP. This is 19. 00 percent higher than the proposed ADAPT and 28. 00 percent higher than the revised ADAPT of FEY 2010-11. . REAL SECTOR SCENARIO Different governments have taken six five year plans after the independence mainly emphasizing on the acceleration of economic growth, poverty alleviation and employment generation. The growth performance during previous five year plans was not up to the mark considering the achievement of targeted growth rate. 5. 21 percent against the targeted growth rate of 7 percent. Under the business as usual scenario, the average annual growth rate of 5. 5 percent might be achieved by the end of Sixth Five Year Plan against the targeted growth rate of 7. 3 percent.
Therefore, the year gap between targeted and achieved growth rate might increase further in the upcoming years while the main objectives of the plans may remain far behind. Agriculture The sector of agriculture is one of the driving forces of the economy and the life- blood of rural economy. A large population is depended on the sector of agriculture not only because of food but also because of livelihood options. Therefore, any change in agriculture sector affects the livelihood of mass people both directly and indirectly. Nevertheless, total employment of agriculture has decreased from 48. 10 percent in 2005 to 43. 3 percent in 2009 although it remained the highest source of employment (MESS, 2009). The target of current government is to increase food production and ensure food security with keeping the price of agriculture inputs like fertilizer, seed, fuel etc. At a reasonable level. However, recent increased price of fertilizer, fuel and electricity may build a barrier in fostering the pace of agricultural advancement. Industry Bangladesh is in the process of transmission from a predominantly agrarian economy. The present government is promised to increase the contribution of industrial sector in GAP from 30. 3 percent in FEY 2010-11 to 40 percent by the calendar year 2021. In addition, the proportion of labor force employee’s projected to accelerate from 17. 85 percent in FEY-2009-10th 25 percent by the calendar year 2021. Growth Rate of Manufacturing Sector The manufacturing sector consists of two sub-sectors: Small and Cottage Industry and Medium and Large Industry. Therefore, the total growth depends on both the two sub-sectors. During FEY 2009-10, the growth rate of total manufacturing sector was 6. Percent whereas the growth rate of small and cottage industry was 7. 7 and medium and large industry was 5. 98 percent. In FEY 2010-11, the growth rate of total manufacturing sector increased to 9. 51 percent. On one hand, the growth rate of small and cottage industry decreased to 7. 34 percent and on the other hand, medium and large industry increased to 10. 41 percent. According to the business as usual scenario, in FEY 2011-12, total growth rate of manufacturing sector might be 9. 76 percent, while the growth rate of small and cottage industry and medium and large industry might bee. 36, and 10. 76 percent respectively.
