Macroeconomic and Sectoral Policies

The key challenge facing the macroeconomy is to break away from the current stagnating rate of growth at six per cent over a decade. The Unnayan Onneshan examines macroeconomic and sectoral policies to augment capital formation, expand real economy, and enhance investment in physical and social infrastructure. The UO continues to maintain its niche of proposing evidence-based, credible and doable policies and instruments through analysis of different elements (real, monetary, fiscal, external), disseminating through monthly, quarterly and half yearly updates.
