Bangladesh is one of the world's poorest nations, with overpopulation adding to its economic woes, and it is heavily reliant on foreign aid. However Bangladesh has made major strides to meet the food needs of its increasing population, through increased domestic production augmented by imports. The country's economy is based on agriculture with some more than half of the population engaged in farming. Jute and tea are principal sources of foreign exchange. A private ready-made garment industry growing at double-digit rates has also created almost 2 million jobs for women in the country since the early 90s.
