Bangladesh and India have ended three days of acrimonious trade talks, leaving major disputes unresolved.
A huge trade deficit with its giant neighbour has caused Bangladesh to requested tariff exemptions on 191 items, of which India agreed to 40.
"The duty-free access to 40 items will not make much difference considering the size of the (trade) imbalance," Bangladesh's Commerce Secretary Suhel Ahmed said.
The items range from prepared foods and toiletries to leather products and electrical goods, a joint statement said.
The Bangladesh's trade deficit ballooned to $1.1bn in 2001 from $53.3m in 1985, which has caused growing unease among Bangladeshi exporters.
