Context

India-Bangladesh bilateral relations received a boost as the two countries came close to resolving border disputes and trade issues on Tuesday. The Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina agreed in the meeting to exchange 163 enclaves and to demarcate 6.5km of the border.
India also agreed to allow 61 items from Bangladesh to access Indian markets, duty-free.

The two countries however were not able to reach a compromise on the sharing of water from the Teesta and Feni rivers, which almost cause the collapse of other agreements as well.
