Once, Bangladesh was a rural country; but now, Bangladesh is a rural-urban country; by the year 2020, 50% of the Bangladesh will be urban, and by the year 2050, Bangladesh will fully become an urban country.
In fact, right now about 35% of the people live in the urban areas; by the year 2020, 50% of the people will live in the urbanized areas, and by the year 2050, 100% people will live in the fully urbanized Bangladesh.
Facing and shaping the challenges in the urban areas and facing and shaping the challenges in the rapidly changing rural areas simultaneously, Bangladesh needs now to establish a dynamic administrative structure (for the rural-urban Bangladesh) at its all administrative layers.
Towards that end, please find the attached is a proposed dynamic administrative structure of Bangladesh prepared on the basis of predicted changes and challenges by the years 2020 and 2050; one part of the proposed structure is for the present rural-urban Bangladesh and another part of the structure is for the future 100% urbanized Bangladesh.
It should be mentioned that the proposed administrative structure was prepared by Mr. Abu Taleb and presented by himself at a national seminar held in Dhaka on 13 January 1997. Now, we are more confident that either of the two proposed administrative structures, if implemented now, could shape the future of Bangladesh and its peoples.
However, if the attached graphical governmental structures (for the present rural-urban Bangladesh and for the future 100% urbanized Bangladesh) and their significances are not fully clear to you, please let us know your informational questions on them.
