This report is a pre-requisite of completion of the BBA Program. I conducted my internship program with the duration of 3 months in Center for Development and Competitive Strategies LTD.For this time being I got the opportunity to work in USAID_AVC project as a part of AVC team. In this phase of my education I received the practical knowledge related with my education. I achieved a commendable knowledge on value chain and market development process. The report emphasize on the “Stakeholders Reflection of Agricultural Value Chain Project in Bangladesh.” services offered by AVC to the value chain stakeholders, present condition of value chain in Bangladesh, its different crops, opportunities and way forward. For this stakeholder feedback survey 18 questions have been asked to 30 different stakeholders of the value chain. AVC tries to improve Bangladesh’s economic stability by strengthening the agricultural value chains in the impoverished Southern Delta region. The project geographic focus is twenty districts in Barisal, Dhaka and Khulna Divisions. The project identified six food and two non food agricultural value chains with the potential for value added processing leading to import substitution and export promotion. According to my observation and understanding, it is very difficult on my part to introduce the stakeholders feedback in this short period of time. Although they are doing a good job but according to my perception they need to focus more on the overall management and communication system with the farmers and traders and behavioral change of farmers which should be much cooperative with the development process. I express my observation and personal experience towards the project. I made necessary recommendations to be adjusted to maintain the organizations journey to the excellence according to my viewpoint. To summarize the whole situation, I would like to say that, this organization is trying their best and putting a lot of efforts to develop the value chain system.
