Abstract

History of reforms in Bangladesh is not as old as other developing countries in the world. Reform initiatives in the economy of Bangladesh have begun in the mid 70s and early in the 80s when Government of Bangladesh changed its socialistic goals and denationalized some of its enterprises. Some reforms initiatives were started by government itself and many reforms programs were introduced and implemented by government through the motivational financial incentives from the development agencies under a package of structural adjustment policies in 1980s and 1990s. World Bank, IMF, ADB, IDB and so many development partners came forward to help government in its reform programs. In fact, Government of Bangladesh implemented financial sector reform programs, as part of broader economic reforms since the late 1980s. It is more than two decades that financial sector of Bangladesh experienced reforms programs. Some improvements are also observed in this sector but it is not up to the mark. This paper evaluates the impacts, limitations and constraints of financial sector reforms implemented in Bangladesh in order to provide some important suggestions for further improvements of the sector. Bangladesh is a low-income generating country characterized by almost undiversified financial sectors which have experienced considerable financial reforms activities through the consultation of international donor agencies. The research paper is prepared based on secondary sources such as various journal articles, books, websites etc. This paper concentrates on the impacts of the reforms on the banking system..
