Bangladesh Overview

Bangladesh is a parliamentary republic in South Asia, on the Bay of Bengal. The capital is the metropolis of Dhaka. Most of Bangladesh is fertile lowland that rises only a few meters above sea level. It is crossed by the water-rich rivers Ganges and Brahmaputra , which form a huge delta below their confluence. The marshland of the Sundarbans stretches along the coast. Bangladesh has a tropical monsoon climate with high seasonal rainfall. Tropical cyclones over the Bay of Bengal repeatedly lead to catastrophic flooding.

Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated territorial states in the world. The majority of the population belongs ethnically and linguistically to the Bengali people. The residents are Bengali and almost two thirds live in small settlements scattered across the country. Islam is the state religion. Despite an annual economic growth of 6% on average since the turn of the millennium, Bangladesh is a developing country with a quarter of the population living below the poverty line. The most important branches of the economy are agriculture and the textile industry. However, many textile companies have come under international criticism for failing to comply with safety standards and extremely low wages. The natural gas deposits in the north-east of the country are of great importance for the energy supply.

As the eastern part of Bengal , the country became part of the British India colony in 1885. After the secession from India in 1947, it belonged to Pakistan under the name of “East Pakistan”. In 1971 the country declared its independence under the new name »Bangladesh«. The first years of the independent state were marked by the strong position of the military and the president. In 1991 Bangladesh got a democratic, parliamentary constitution. The power struggle between the two rival politicians Khaleda Zia and Hasina Wajed has shaped the domestic political situation ever since.

Media

Freedom of expression and freedom of the press are protected by the constitution, but have been significantly restricted under Sheikh Hasina in recent years. Journalists are repeatedly exposed to state repression.

Press: There are more than 200 daily newspapers, most of which are privately owned; the predominant language is Bengali. The most popular are “Dainik Ittefaq” (founded 1953, also in English), “Amar Desh” (founded 2004), “Dainik Inqilab,” Dainik Janakantha (founded 1993) and “Jaijaidin” (founded 1984). The most influential paper in the English language is the »Daily Star« (founded in 1991). The press landscape is shaped by the strong political polarization.

News agencies: “Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha” (BSS, state-owned, founded in 1972) and “United News of Bangladesh” (UNB, independent, founded in 1988).

Broadcasting: The National Broadcasting Authority operates the Bangladesh Betar company (founded in 1971), which broadcasts radio programs in Bengali and English and operates a foreign service in Hindi, Nepalese, Urdu, Bengali, English and Arabic. There are also 16 regional so-called community radios and roughly the same number of private radio stations. In addition to the state television company »Bangladesh Television« (BTV, founded in 1971) and the parliamentary broadcaster »Sangsad TV«, there are around two dozen private television stations; the oldest and one of the most popular is “Ekushey Television” (ETV, founded in 1999). The cable channel »ATN Bangla« also broadcasts on other continents. Numerous foreign TV channels are also received via satellite in Bangladesh.
