Bangladesh and China have signed total four MoUs (memorandum of understanding) to boost bilateral cooperation between two countries on August 7.

Chinese Ambassador Li Jiming and high-level Bangladeshi government officials signed the agreements during an event held in Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel, Dhaka.

Foreign Minister A K Abdul Momen and his Chinese counterpart Mr Wang Yi were present at the time. 

Wang Yi, following his meeting with A K Abdul Momen, said that the Bangladeshi students studying in different Chinese universities, who had to come back home because of the Covid-19 pandemic,  will be able to return to their respective university campuses starting today (7 August).

"Visas will be issued [to the students] at the earliest," he added.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has come to Dhaka on a two-day trip to discuss bilateral, regional and global issues with Bangladesh leadership.

Agriculture Minister Muhammad Abdur Razzaque received the Chinese foreign minister at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA) around 5pm on 6 August.

Minister Wang is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Sunday morning apart from holding a bilateral meeting with his Bangladesh counterpart AK Abdul Momen the same day.

The visit is taking place amid growing geopolitical tensions with impact on developing countries in the region while experts suggest Bangladesh to ensure a strategic balance amid these tensions.
