Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa will make a state visit to Bangladesh on March 19 and 20 on an invitation extended by Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the Prime Minister’s Media Unit said.

The visit will coincide with the celebration of the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the Golden Jubilee of the Independence of Bangladesh.

Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Health has granted approval to undertake the state visit to Bangladesh as a Bio Secure Travel Bubble adhering to strict COVID-19 preventive measures. 

Prime Minister Rajapaksa will be delivering a speech Friday evening at the event to mark the conclusion of the “Mujib Year,” declared to celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and Bangladesh’s independence. 

During the visit, the Prime Minister will hold high-level bilateral meetings with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, President of Bangladesh Mohammad Abdul Hamid, the Foreign Minister of Bangladesh and the Governor of the Bangladesh Bank. 

The special invitation and the high-level bilateral discussions are expected to enhance the strong relations the two countries have enjoyed for a very long time. Bilateral discussions will touch upon a variety of sectors including agriculture, trade and investment, defense, maritime connectivity, education, health and tourism.

A number of Memoranda of Understanding will be signed between the two counties in various sectors such as agriculture, technical education, health and cultural cooperation.
