Poverty is a socio-economic problem in Bangladesh which is an emerging economy. The research question of the study is “What are the ways of poverty drop in Bangladesh from the regulation of international political economy and development perspective and how governance of the country can reduce poverty?”. The time period of the research work is from August 2020 to December 2020. The study estimates the multiple regression equation. The study found that life expectancy and crude birth rate per 1000 are significant at a 5% level of significance against per capita GDP. Rising per capita GDP is the chief indicator of poverty reduction in the study, and the export earnings have been found to have a prominent role in rising per capita GDP indicating the needs for a stronger global partnership (SDG-17) alongside a strong local collaboration to achieve poverty reduction and become a middle-income country as per the Government’s Vision 2021. The study has observed that Bangladesh is gradually decreasing poverty over the time period, along with rising per capita income for which stable government regulation to drive poverty is needed so that LDC graduation in 2026 can be feasible.
