    Bangladesh’s Policy Research Institute (PRI) recently urged the government to keep the economy open despite the spread of new coronavirus variant omicron. “The government needs to strengthen the safety and healthcare system, but we do not want to see any lockdown or any types of severe measures,” PRI executive director Ahsan H Mansur said.

    The independent economic research organisation made the suggestion at a webinar titled ‘After the pandemic onslaught—economy on strong recovery path’.

    “All the sectors did not recover at the same pace, so the sectors that recovered slowly should get priority and get government support,’ said South Asian Network on Economic Modeling research director Sayema Haque Bidisha.

    Transport, tourism and construction were among the sectors that recovered at the slowest pace, she was quoted as saying by Bangladeshi media reports.

    The process of human capital development has been hit hard during the pandemic, so the government should now think on how it can be recovered, she added.
