In the age of globalization, trade is important for any country of the world wherever the location of the country is. For the case of Bangladesh and India, they share 4096.7 km of land borderline, trade is definitely important here for reasons of security, mutual benefit, and regional integration. Our current study will try to find the trade asymmetry between India and Bangladesh and their impact on trade imbalance. In addition, we will also try to focus on how to overcome the asymmetry and finally try to draw a cost-benefit, analysis of trade between two countries. Finally, why trade is important for these countries? Is it because of economic diplomacy or because of they want to use trade as a bargaining power?
