DHAKA, May 20, 2024 (BSS) - A foreign ministerial level bilateral meeting between Dhaka and Canberra will be held here tomorrow afternoon as Australian foreign minister Penny Wong is due tomorrow for a two-day official visit.

Penny Wong will also pay a courtesy call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday afternoon.
The Australian minister is likely to visit the Rohingya camp during her visit to see the situation there.

Bangladesh and Australia have already signed a framework agreement to open newer trade and investment opportunities between the two countries.
