The 'Blue Economy' is an emerging term that promotes the sustainable use of marine resources for economic growth, improved living standards, and employment while preserving the ocean’s ecosystem. It emphasizes the management of the sea and the sustainable use of marine resources. The sea area of Bangladesh is 1, 18, 813 sq km, which is close to our land area and is full of biodiversity. Our Bay of Bengal (BOB) is rich in four types of resources such as fisheries, minerals, water plantains and other water resources. Several sectors of the Blue Economy, including fisheries, shipping and port facilities, are contributing to our economy in a broad way. We can build a robust economy in Bangladesh by making proper utilization of other areas of the blue economy. We know that the government has already started taking various important measures to utilize our blue resources. The effects of COVID-19 are immense both on land and in our oceans. The pandemic presents an opportunity to develop a sustainable blue economy suitable for the future that will help revive our downtrodden economy.
