Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will leave for Dubai today on a four-day official visit to attend Dubai Air Show 2019 and other programmes.
The premier will visit the UAE at the invitation of its ruler Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashed al Maktoum.
Bangladesh Ambassador to the UAE Mohammad Imran will receive the premier at Dubai International Airport.
This Sunday, Sheikh Hasina will attend the opening ceremony of Dubai Air Show 2019, one of the largest and most successful air shows in the world and the biggest aerospace event in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
As many as 87,000 participants and 1,300 exhibitors from all over the world are expected to gather at Dubai World Central.
“During the prime minister’s visit, two bilateral cooperation documents and a protocol are expected to be signed between Bangladesh and the UAE,” Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen told a news briefing on Thursday.
The foreign minister also said Sheikh Hasina on Monday will inaugurate the Election Commission’s programme to start registering Bangladeshis working in the United Arab Emirates on the voter list and distributing smart NID cards among them at the Bangladesh Embassy in Abu Dhabi.
Apart from the ruler of Dubai, Momen said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will also hold meetings with Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan, and UAE’s Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation Fatima bint Mubarak al Ketbi.
“It is expected that the visit will have a positive impact on UAE investment in different sectors of Bangladesh and will help boost cooperation between the investment authorities,” he added.
