The relationship between the neighbours is crucial, with India being Bangladesh's largest trading partner in South Asia. While China is involved in almost all major infrastructure development schemes in Bangladesh, India is also more eager to take up joint projects. Meanwhile, Bangladesh runs a significant trade imbalance with India, an issue that may be discussed during Hasina's visit. (Image: AFP)

In the fiscal year 2021-22, Bangladesh imported goods worth around $14 billion from India while exports to its neighbouring country ran lower at $1.8 billion, according to official figures. Authorities and trade bodies often blame tariff and non-tariff barriers as well as anti-dumping obstacles imposed by India for the low exports. (Image: AFP)

Another priority for Hasina may be to make progress on agreements for water sharing of the Teesta River, a major trans-boundary river that begins in India's Sikkim state and runs through the north of West Bengal state before flowing into Bangladesh. (Image: AP)

For decades, there was no movement on this issue until 2011 when India agreed to share waters during the lean season, between December and March — but the deal never went through due to strong opposition from the West Bengal state's chief minister, Mamata Banerjee. When Modi visited Bangladesh last year, he reiterated India's commitment to conclude this agreement but the impasse has dragged on. (Image: AFP)
