The Bancroft Hotel, 2680 Bancroft Way, Berkeley
A one-day symposium which will bring together a diverse panel of experts to discuss four policy areas critical to Bangladesh’s growth and development. The talks will be followed by a Q&A session and a discussion of how to address some of the challenges that have been brought up during the session. We plan to put together a series of policy recommendations based on the presentations during this symposium, and hope to present them to the newly elected government in the near future.
