Using a gravity approach, this study primarily explores Bangladesh's trade pattern. It is found that Bangladesh's trade patterns are basically consistent with the prediction of the gravity model across decades. Additionally, the comparison between actual and predicted trade volumes indicates that Bangladesh's exports are heavily dependent on the US market. Policy implications follow.
