The Australian Government is providing an estimated $59.8 million in total ODA to Bangladesh in 2015-16. This includes an estimated $42.1 million in bilateral funding to Bangladesh managed by DFAT.
Australia’s bilateral relationship with Bangladesh continues to grow. Two-way trade exceeded $1.1 billion in 2014 on the back of sustained growth in the Bangladesh economy. Australia is increasingly a preferred education destination for Bangladeshi students. Our development partnership – one of Australia’s largest – is long-standing.
