Bangladeshi farmers harvest rice in a fi
Bangladeshi farmers harvest rice in a field on the outskirts of Dhaka on May 29, 2012. Bangladesh's economy is forecast to have grown at 6.32 percent in the fiscal year to June, a slowdown from last year's expansion, dragged by a "saturated" farm sector. The government had projected seven percent growth in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the 2011-12 financial year, but a meagre two percent expansion in the key agriculture sector means the growth has fallen short of expectations.
