Two countries compared - Italy and Bangladesh

Extracts from this document...


Most of us have a mental picture or image of what a country is like. However if you were asked to compare two countries what would you start to think about? Maybe you would search for the differences and similarities between both countries, any way, I would take into consideration the main facts and differences between both countries and compare them.
