Economic Diplomacy and Bangladesh Foreign Policy: A Discourse
Conceptually, diplomacy and foreign policy are interlinked. The latter is what a country does; the former is how the country does it. Diplomacy may thus be assumed to be a dependent variable of foreign policy. Economic diplomacy focuses on a country’s economic relations with other countries to put its foreign policy goals into operation. How a country manages its economic diplomacy relies on how it oversees its foreign policy objectives. Thus, nexus between economic diplomacy and foreign policy is irrefutable. How/whether Bangladesh’s economic diplomacy has been reflected in its foreign policy is something to be looked into. This is the key of this paper.
