what do you want to export to India that India is putting unfair blocks on ?
This is exactly the issue Pakistan is facing with China.
Trade is not just government to government.
Their has to be a buyer at the end of the trade. Governments cannot import and store goods.
I have some excellent shirts mfd in BD , international brands. So if BD makes something viable , Indians will buy , because our relationship is not like the indo pak one, where anything made in India cannot be imported directly and has to come via Dubai.

Already number of threads are on it. Search and find it out.

Do not please write something that makes us angry. Do you really think the govt of India is so willing to give any country something? It is just the opposite. India is there only to take. Please read the trade figures.
We have a trade deficit with China 10 times yours. Does that mean China is only to take? You can't have a trade surplus with a country which has more competitive market than yours. That's the rule. India has a market size 10 times of Bangladesh, India doesn't even care about it's exports to Bangladesh which is only 2%. India alone can absorb whatever Bangladesh produces, Bangladesh just needs to make its produce competitive and qualitative except Garments of course.

Not strictly true.

Although India is playing a bit more fair on trade with BD lately, it still is not totally there.

Let there be a FTA agreement between India and BD and see how much BD exports to India balloons.

I expect BD electronics companies to eventually dominate the home electronics sector in India. No way assembled products with the "Make in India" initiative can compete with the likes of Walton who pretty much manufacture products such TVs almost from scratch.

India already exports pretty much what it can to BD anyway and its vehicle exports will be hit with 2-300% VAT to make sure that no mass car usage takes hold in BD. As BD has no car industry this will not hurt its own car companies.

You just don't know.

Some of your branded appliances (fridges and TVs) may already be made in Bangladesh. The amount of products are wide-ranging and they are price competitive.

For starters you can look for bikes and undies in Indian market. Undies will be mainly for women members of your family and they are the exact same as offered in Victoria's secret and other high-street brands globally.

There are Rs. 40,000 hybrid Bangladeshi bikes available in India which compare well to bikes priced at Rs.60,000 imported from other ASEAN countries. One example below.

Bangladesh most important in India's 'Neighbourhood First Policy': Jaishankar​


Bangladesh most important in India's 'Neighbourhood First Policy': Jaishankar

Star Digital Report

India's External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar today stressed that Bangladesh features as the most important country in the Indian Foreign Policy objectives of "Neighbourhood First Policy".

Bangladesh and India have been maintaining an excellent relationship even during the pandemic when the whole world was at a standstill, a press release issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs quoted him as saying today.

Foreign Minister of Bangladesh Dr AK Abdul Momen and Dr S Jaishankar met today to comprehensively discuss the bilateral issues between Bangladesh and India.

Jaishankar appreciated Bangladesh for the transformative socio-economic development under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

He emphasized on promoting trade, commerce and connectivity especially in the light of supply chain disruption resulting from Covid-19 restrictions and recent conflict in Ukraine.

He assured of India's cooperation in resolving some of the concerns of Bangladesh including the early repatriation of forcibly displaced Myanmar nationals to their country of origin.

Both the Foreign Ministers noted that 2021 was a landmark year for the Bangladesh-India relationship as the President and Prime Minister of India visited Bangladesh in a single year and both the counties celebrated the 50th years of diplomatic ties through the joint celebration of a number of landmark events across the world.

Both the Foreign Ministers expressed satisfaction with the ongoing cooperation between the countries and discussed the possible dates of the visit of the prime minister of Bangladesh to India to further cement ties.

They underscored the necessity of holding the next round of Joint Consultation Commission (JCC) meeting at the earliest convenience of both sides. Both the foreign ministers stressed on following up the decisions taken at the highest level for their effective implementation for mutual benefit.

Momen reiterated that India is the most important neighbour for Bangladesh, noting that over the last few years, both the countries have achieved remarkable progress in a number of areas.

The foreign minister recalled that the two countries had resolved many of the outstanding issues in the spirit of friendship and cooperation and expressed hope that all outstanding issues including the early signing of the Teesta Water Sharing Treaty may be concluded at an early date.

Momen stressed on robust trade and commerce between the two countries. He also sought the support of India for the speedy repatriation of the forcibly displaced Myanmar nationals to their country of origin.

He expressed satisfaction on the rise of trade volume between the two countries and the announcement of 200 scholarships by the Bangladeshi government for the family members of war veterans of India who fought for Bangladesh in 1971.

He also stressed on early and timely completion of some of the projects funded by India and on the need of sub-regional cooperation in all matters, particularly in the energy sector.

The Indian external affairs minister arrived today in the afternoon with a high level delegation, including Foreign Secretary-designate Vinay Mohan Kwatra.

Earlier in the afternoon, Jaishanker called on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at Gono Bhaban.

You know what, you may be right about Walton. The domestic market is dominated by Korean, Japanese and Chinese brands. I see no reason why Walton shouldn’t dominate the home electronics market with the right branding, quality standards, pricing etc. (all of which I’m sure they are already taking care of).

Hope we see this soon to be honest.

All of our agreements, treaties and understanding with India remain on paper only. India stops flow of water and stops our goods to enter its border irrespective of treaties have been signed.
