I had no idea that only 5 countries are Category 2 countries! Astonishing that even a lot of other 3rd world countries have Cat 1 rating.... shame on CAAB!

Prior to Malaysia, Thailand airports were downgraded to category 2 by US FAA.

International airports across the world get downgraded and/or upgraded often as FAA conducts its periodic audits (I don't know the interval). For example, Philippines MNL airport was downgraded to category 2, and then Indian airports were downgraded some years back. Both countries were successful to regain category 1 rating after submitting for re-audits, having made up the deficiency (problems) that were cited by FAA.

Bangladesh, (and perhaps a handful of countries) is a special case in that it has structural problem with how civil aviation is administered. The fundamental issue is how the civil aviation agency, the administrative body, i.e. CAAB is organized, staffed, and managed as well as how CAAB meets its obligations. Unless it has finally fixed, CAAB has been routinely staffed and managed by BAF personnel on deputation for civil duties. That is a no no. CAAB needs to be independent of Bangladesh military. Not only that, it has to be independent from the ministry of civil aviation. Beyond that, a competent civil aviation agency has to have some key departments within the organization that discharge various functions like aircraft airworthiness safety inspectors, airport security inspectors, crash/disaster management experts, and so on.

Unless all those requirements have been satisfactorily met, I don't believe FAA would upgrade Bangladesh to category 1.
