This paper applies the generalized gravity model to analyze the Bangladesh’s import trade with its major trading partners using the panel data estimation technique. Our results show that Bangladesh’s imports are determined by the inflation rates, per capita income differentials and openness of the countries involved in trade. Also the country’s imports are found to be influenced to a great extent by the border between India and Bangladesh. The country specific effects show that the influence of neighbouring countries is more than that of distant countries on Bangladesh’s imports.
