    Dear Qimiao Fan,

    1) I hope you must have taken the note of my response posting date 06/13/2017 and would like to write few more issues with respect to your concern on Bangladesh .

    2) I fully agree with Mr. Zahid Hussain when he says that "Bangladesh infrastructure is world’s costliest" and it is due to corruption in bidding process.

    3) In my opinion based on very specific research to great extent "World Bank" it self is responsible for such "corruption" and being "Costliest".

    4) Keeping aside all the norms of road construction " World Permitted" rural road construction out of a livelihood development project of poor and extreme poor women.I wonder
    what kind of policy and monitoring system World Bank fallows and/or followed in SIPPI ,SIPPII and NJLIP ?

    5) More pathetic part is that many of rural roads are only on papers or have no provision of sustainability and even it is apprehended that it possible only when World Bank also shares in siphoning of funds in name of such infrastructure construction.

    6) There are more or less same situation in tube well and there are documentary proves of selling the tube wells to private owner out of community funds but World Bank staff has no control and system to monitor it or becomes a share holder.

    7)The issues goes even farther since same infrastructure is replicated more than once in various project of World Bank it self and/or other funding agencies.

    8)In view of the above World Bank can be more strict and more transparent and even make GRS
    system online and very prompt for citizens .

    9) I made attempt to answer your concern and await your reaction
