PM to visit Japan likely in November
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will visit Japan as the two countries celebrate the 50 years of diplomatic relationship this year.
"The prime minister is very likely to go there at the end of November. The date and details are yet to be finalised," a foreign ministry official told The Daily Star yesterday.
Japan, a major development partner of Bangladesh, is constructing some of the country's major infrastructures, including metro rail and the third terminal of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport.
A part of the metro rail is likely to be opened in December, and Hasina may invite her Japanese counterpart Fumio Kishida to visit Bangladesh during that time.
"We want the Japanese prime minister's visit to take place, but it has not been confirmed yet," the foreign ministry official said.
