Economic Prospects and Constraints of Cox’s Bazar Bangladesh – A Study

ABSTRACT: Present study mainly examines potential tourism products of Cox’s Bazar (a major tourists’ zone) and its nearer areas, present performance of Bangladesh tourism and prevailing constraints and challenges of the same. The study results reveal that Bangladesh has huge prospects to flourish its economy through tourism and the world recognized heritage ‘Cox’s Bazar’ has many tourism products to attract worldwide tourists’.
But due to lack of resource constraints and other reasons government initiatives are not adequate to develop (specially infrastructure) tourism in the country and so, this industry is still unexplored to most potential tourists’ of the world. The study concludes that both government and private interventions are vital to develop and modernize the Cox’s Bazaar (tourist capital of the country) including other potential tourism spots of Bangladesh.
