"All progress occurs because people dare to be different."
The latest in the politics of development:
Bangladesh government has postponed a plan to purchase 13 new aircraft for Biman Bangladesh Airlines due to fund crisis and instead took a decision to find out a strategic partner for the survival of the loss-making national flag carrier. (source)
Just to put things in perspective:
Bangladesh has bought 16 F-7 BG fighter aircraft with maximum speed of 2,170 km per hour from China. Eight aircrafts have already been commissioned and the other eight of them are yet to be delivered and included into the fleet of Air Force. (source)
One can only imagine where the country is progressing to.
