As the world eagerly awaits the result of the critical US Presidential Election, an obvious question arises -- will it have any implication on US-Bangladesh relations with a change at the helm or will it remain the same?

Analysts say if Democratic candidate Joe Biden wins, he will relax restrictions on immigration laws. However, any other policy which would apply to Bangladesh will remain largely the same.

"Because of Trump's policy change, many Bangladeshis who have not been able to secure the legal status in the US will benefit if Biden wins. Many families who had been separated will be able to reunite eventually," said former foreign secretary Touhid Hossain.
