Feel free to check out our vibrant InterNations Communities in countries like Bahrain or China.
Located on the spectacular Bay of Bengal, the rich natural beauty of Bangladesh cannot be disputed. The South Asian country, located east of India, has a lush green landscape and many rivers, plus a picturesque coastline. The southerly Sundarbans, a large mangrove forest, is also home to the Royal Bengal tiger and attracts many wildlife enthusiasts. Agriculture and the service industry are the two biggest sectors in Bangladesh, with over half of Bangladeshi people employed in agriculture. Garments are also extremely important to the economy, accounting for over 80% of the country's total exports. Many expats work for multinational companies, teach English or volunteer in the country. Expat residents are often based in the larger cities, such as Dhaka, and find the people to be very friendly and welcoming in the country.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Egypt or Panama, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
