Bangladesh bid to boost Burma trade
Most of Burma's current trade is with its other neighbours - China, Thailand, India and Malaysia.
But Burma shares more than 200km (125 miles) of border with Bangladesh, and as it implements economic and social reforms, long-standing sanctions imposed by the international community are being lifted.
Bangladesh is now being recognised as a densely populated, viable and relatively accessible market for many of Burma's natural resources and food stuffs.
