Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina may attend the Commonwealth Head of Governments Meeting in Sri Lanka from November 15 to 17.

“The prime minister is very likely to attend the Commonwealth summit for one day as Sri Lanka requested her to join the event several times,” a foreign ministry official said.

Foreign Minister Dipu Moni and Secretary Md Shahidul Haque will attend the event.

Bangladesh will push for its priority issues in the meeting, the foreign secretary told the Dhaka Tribune.

 “Climate change, regional issues, health, human mobility are among the priority areas for Bangladesh and we will push for inclusion of those issues in the CHOGM agenda,” he said.

The focus of the upcoming Commonwealth meeting is ‘growth with equity,’ which Bangladesh supports, he said.

Every two years Commonwealth leaders meet at the summit of Commonwealth to discuss global and Commonwealth issues, and to agree on collective policies and initiatives.

Human rights situation in Sri Lanka and polls in the Maldives are the major issues that are expected to be discussed prominently in the meeting. Bangladesh, being the chair of Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group, is playing a crucial role on these issues. (Source: Dhaka Tribune)
