About Bangladesh

An agrarian state in South Asia, one of the poorest countries in the world. More than 60% of the inhabitants are engaged in agriculture: they grow rice, jute, tea, wheat, sugarcane and other crops, and are engaged in animal husbandry. At the same time, the textile industry brings most of the income to the country — it attracts foreign investors due to the low cost of labor.
