In his presentation, Professor Karim referred to the per capita investment in research and education in Asian countries like Korea, Malaysia which is increasing compared to those of other countries. Among Bangladeshi Universities, only Dhaka University is included in ranking but its position is far too below. One Chinese University stands at the top. Bangladesh needs to invest heavily in research and education to catch up the race.
