Abstract

India and Bangladesh, both have an export-led a strategy that has reduced poverty, promoted economically development, and brought in new employment opportunities. However, women have not reaped the benefits from trade between India and Bangladesh. Factors like geographical proximity, cultural and historical the similarity between the two countries present a mutual advantage for creating a favorable trade regime for women. Since the effects of trade are not gender-neutral, this paper proposes addressing the challenges faced by women traders as part of the forthcoming trade partnership - Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA). The recommended policy solutions would likely correct existing gender inequalities within the sector and provide overarching opportunities for female traders.
