Wajed said that some agreements and MoUs will be signed during the visit which would pave the way to take the relations between the two countries to a new horizon, in addition to exchanging views on the most important regional and international developments of common concern, with a focus on some issues such as the Palestinian cause.

She praised the dynamic and visionary leadership of H H the Amir for providing a high standard of living for Qatari people, achieving one of the highest per capita incomes and launching Qatar National Vision-2030 to transform Qatar into an advanced society capable of sustaining its development.

Prime Minister of Bangladesh touched on the areas of bilateral cooperation that witnessed growth over the past years, including cooperation in the fields of labour, energy, defence, trade, culture, education, and other fields, many of which were framed in memorandums of understanding and joint cooperation agreements.

She stated:“The bilateral trade exceeded the two-billion-dollar mark during the last FY 2021-2022 and is on the rise. The relationship is fast moving towards an economic partnership,” adding“I will say that we have achieved a lot bilaterally but the better part of cooperation is still to come.”

She pointed out that despite the diverse levels of economic development, there is yet room and opportunities in areas like trade and commerce, investment, education, agriculture, and climate change“where both countries can engage through so many new forms and modalities”.
