Industrial Policy 2005 aims to accept private initiatives as the main driving force of economic development. Keeping this in mind, private investment has been encouraged in several sectors. The role of state-owned enterprises in the economy is being reduced gradually and privatization of enterprises in various sectors is being encouraged. Bangladesh's High Court lifted a nine-year ban on offering onshore exploration licenses in January 2010, after lifting the ban for offshore regions in July 2006. These developments have paved the way for the planned bidding round. In 2010, the government announced a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) fund of BDT240bn ($3.2bn) to provide loans to SMEs and women entrepreneurs. The country has completed the legal and regulatory framework needed to start e-commerce in 2012.
Under its Vision 2021 strategy, the country plans to move into the middle-income category through various development initiatives. Under Vision 2021, the government is targeting economic emancipation and establishment of digital Bangladesh. The country plans to raise its GDP growth to 8% by 2013 and 10% by 2021. The country plans to focus on agriculture and labor-intensive industries, as well as the information technology sector. In June 2012, the government introduced a budget of $23.67bn for FY2012, ending in June 2013, aimed at economic growth of 7.2% and a budget deficit of 5% of GDP.
