The word 'diplomacy' usually provides a picture of a group of people wearing official suits, ties, shining shoes and living a prestigious life abroad. They are the agents to maintain good relations among states, negotiating peace in a state of conflict or facilitating further mutually beneficial relationship.

Use of diplomacy to achieve mutual interests started since ancient times. Its use and forms in ancient China, India, Greece, Middle East and Europe were different on the basis of aims and objectives. Previously in informal diplomacy, negotiators/diplomats were used to be sent to a particular state/region with a specific task. They used to negotiate a single issue with their counterparts. But today use of diplomatic missions (formal diplomacy) is more popular around the world.

We can classify diplomacy on the basis of the objective and nature of tasks like peace-making, peace keeping, trade negotiation, partnership in economic development, cultural exchange, environment, human rights and other issues.

Keywords: Diplomacy, Economic Diplomacy, Economic Development, Diplomacy of Bangladesh
