Bangladesh receives hundreds of millions of dollars a year in foreign aid money, but much of it is ineffective due to such issues as poor project management. This video poses the question "is foreign aid really necessary ?" and takes an informal look at the current picture of foreign aid in Bangladesh —its problems and contradictions— through the eyes of four local experts : Mr. Saiful Huq, General Secretary of the Worker’s Party of Bangladesh, Dr. Anu Muhammad, Professor of Economics at Jahangirnagar University, Dr. Piash Karim, Professor of Sociology at BRAC University, and Ahmed Swapan Mahmud, Executive Director of VOICE Bangladesh.
