Trade and economic cooperation, security and border management, connectivity and infrastructure, water sharing and environmental issues, and cultural and people-to-people ties are some of the areas that are set to be on the agenda of talks

On Friday evening, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar called on the Bangladesh PM at the Taj Palace hotel.

PM Sheikh Hasina on Friday invited Indian businesspersons to invest in Bangladesh, stating that she prioritises neighbouring countries.

“You come to Bangladesh and make investment,” she said while interacting with a delegation of Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) which called on her in New Delhi on Friday evening.
