Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina arrived in the Chinese city of Dalian early on Tuesday morning. She will attend the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) known as ‘Summer Davos’ in Dalian on Tuesday and subsequently leave for Beijing to hold bilateral talks with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and President Xi Jinping.
The Rohingya issue will come up as a major topic during Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s visit. Dhaka expects that China will take a ‘proactive role’ in resolving the issue of repatriation of Rohingyas to Myanmar.
Bangladesh is also making a strong pitch to draw Chinese investment in the country for which eight instruments are scheduled to be signed by the two countries. These agreements will focus on investment in power sector and technical cooperation between Dhaka and Beijing.
