The country’s qualitative dimensions of development in a broader spectrum of areas—politics, economy, society and culture — and deepening of understanding of Bangladesh’s multifaceted development over the last 50 years would be explored in the conference, said the think-tank in a virtual media briefing today.

Experts and intellectuals from across the world will join the conference.
