People’s Republic of Bangladesh is a country in South Asia. It is next to the North-east Indian provincial regions of India, which converges with Southeast Asia to the east. The capital and the largest city is Dhaka. Bangladesh is surrounded on all three sides by India and Myanmar on the south-eastern corner. It is near China, Bhutan, Sikkim and Nepal. Its independence was fully realised after it declared it self as independent most of 1971 from Pakistan after a bloody war in which over a million people died.
Most parts of Bangladesh are less than 39.4 ft above the sea level. The highest point is 3,451 ft in the Chittagong Hill Tracts. A large part of the coastline is a marshy jungle, the Sundarbans. They are the largest mangrove forest in the world.
Dhaka is the largest city of Bangladesh. Other major cities include Chittagong, Khulna, Rajshahi, Sylhet, Barisal, Bogra, Comilla, Mymensingh and Rangpur.
More than 3/4 of Bangladesh’s export earnings come from the garment industry. The industry began attracting foreign investors in the 1980s because of cheap labour and low conversion cost. As of 2014, Bangladesh is the world’s second largest apparel exporter.
Bangladesh is a big market for furniture and real estate. Plywood has a huge need in this country. As a manufacturer of plywood in China, we supply plywood of all kinds to Bangladesh.
