  • When it comes to the news cycle out of South Asia, Bangladesh is often overshadowed by its larger, nuclear-armed neighbors, India and Pakistan. But as the country deals with an unprecedented influx of about a million Rohingya muslim refugees from Myanmar, Bangladesh’s presence on the world stage has taken on a new urgency—as it is shoulders these important diplomatic and humanitarian tests.

    The People's Republic of Bangladesh has a variety of political and social challenges to overcome, whose solutions may very well help determine how much more powerful Bangladesh becomes over the next few years.

    The Bangladesh economy is showing signs of growth. Overall, the quality of life in Bangladesh is beginning improve too, as the nation pulls its people out of poverty. The Bangladesh military is also beginning to strengthen. Meaning, it just might position itself as a third player in South Asia’s largely two-country show.

    So, just how powerful is Bangladesh?

    The only thing that comes to mind when I think about Bangladesh is overcrowded trains and super densely populated places. I might visit the country sometime soon. :)

    3:46 any reference for bad relationship with Pakistan and Bangladesh. It is not true. Since its independence Pakistan has good relations with Bangladesh.
    Bangladesh is close to three nuclear powers India Pakistan and China.
    Economically BD is growing rapidly but they are going to face headwinds due to climate crisis. The recent floods from cyclone bulbul is the latest example. Having said that as compared to other neighboring countries BD has been growing steadily since 1990s, I hope it stays that way.
