Bangladesh competes with Japan and China for ship exports
Bangladesh is known mostly as a shipbreaking nation, with dozens of ageing container vessels heading towards its southern coast for scrap.
However, in recent years it has also emerged as a shipbuilding country.
Shipbuilding yards in Bangladesh are now exporting small and medium-sized ships for the highly competitive European market.
Since 2008, Bangladeshi yards have manufactured and exported ferries, cargo vessels, and ocean-going multi-purpose ships worth more than $500m (£320m).
The vessels were built for countries including Denmark, Germany and Finland.
