Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is leaving here for Belgium today to attend the “Global Gateway Forum” to be held in its capital Brussels on October 25-26 at the invitation of the European Commission (EC) President Ursula von der Leyen.
“A commercial flight (BG 207) of Biman Bangladesh Airlines carrying the prime minister and her entourage members will depart from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA), Dhaka at 11am,” PM’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim said.
The flight is scheduled to arrive at the Brussels Zaventem Airport at 1845 hrs on October 24 (Brussels time).
Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen at a curtain raiser press briefing at his ministry said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s upcoming visit to Brussels will help take Bangladesh’s ties with the European Union (EU) to a new height.
“Bangladesh and the EU are expected to announce the elevation of their 50-year partnership to a new height,” he said.
Sheikh Hasina is scheduled to return home on October 27.
