Foreign Secretary Vinay Kwatra’s official visit to Bangladesh

Indian Foreign Secretary Vinay Kwatra was on a two day official visit to Bangladesh. He arrived in Dhaka on Wednesday evening. This was the first official visit to Bangladesh after the formation of the new government in January 2024.

During the visit, Foreign Secretary called on the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday morning and Foreign Minister Dr. Hasan Mahmud. He also met his counterpart Masud Bin Momen.

The visit to Bangladesh is keeping in line with the highest priority accorded to India’s ‘Neighbourhood First’ Policy, said a press release issued by the Ministry of External Affairs on Thursday evening. 

During the visit, Foreign Secretary reviewed the wide-ranging bilateral relationship including political and security, water, trade and investment, power and energy, defence, connectivity and sub-regional cooperation, said the press release.

Bangladesh is India’s leading development partner and its largest trade partner in the region. Foreign Secretary’s visit is expected to further strengthen bilateral ties and impart momentum to the cooperation in diverse areas, said the press release.
