About bangladesh

Bangladesh is a
country in South Asia.
It is bordered by India
on all sides except for
a small border with
Burma (Myanmar) to
the far southeast and
by the Bay of Bengal
to the south. Together
with the Indian state
of West Bengal, it
makes up the ethno-
linguistic region of
Bengal. The name
Bangladesh means
"Country of Bengal" in
the official Bengali

The borders of
Bangladesh were
established with the
partition of Bengal and
India in 1947, when
the region became the
eastern wing of the
Pakistan. However, it
was separated from
the western wing by 1
,600 kilometres (1,000
mi) across India.
Political and linguistic
discrimination as well
as economic neglect
led to popular
agitations against
West Pakistan, which
led to the war for
independence in 1971
and the establishment
of Bangladesh,
the help of India.
However, the new
state had to endure
famines, natural
disasters and
widespread poverty,
as well as political
turmoil and military
coups. The restoration
of democracy in 1991
has been followed by
relative stability and
economic progress.

Bangladesh is among
the most densely
populated countries in
the world and has a
high poverty rate.
However, per-capita
GDP has more than
doubled since 1975,
and the poverty rate
has fallen by 20%
since the early 1990s.
Dhaka and other urban
centers have been the
driving force behind
this growth.

Geographically, the
country straddles the
fertile Ganges-
Brahmaputra Delta and
is subject to annual
monsoon floods and
cyclones. The
government is a
democracy; however,
political rule was
suspended under
emergency law for
two years from
January 11, 2007 to
December 17, 2008.
Bangladesh is a
member of the
Commonwealth of
Nations, SAARC,

BIMSTEC, the OIC, and
the D-8. As the World
Bank notes in its July
2005 Country Brief, the
country has made
significant progress in
human development in
the areas of literacy,
gender parity in
schooling and reduction
of population
growth.[6] However,
Bangladesh continues
to face a number of
major challenges,
including widespread
political and
corruption, and
economic competition
relative to the world.
