Bangladesh grew faster than RP?

Well, at least the Business Mirror editorial on Feb. 2 said so. Bangladeshi Gross National Product (GNP) increased by 7 percent while the Philippines lags at 5.3 percent?

The ditorial pointed out that Bangladesh was able to do it despite political stalemate.  It went further that the government is the real problem why the economy did not grow as high as that of its neighbors.
