Secretariat Correspondent: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will address a press conference tomorrow (Friday) to brief the media about her just-concluded bilateral official visit to Brunei Darussalam.

“The press conference will be held at her official Ganabhaban residence at 4:00 pm tomorrow (Friday),” PM’s Press Wing told the media on Thursday.

The prime minister paid the three-day visit to Brunei from April 21-23 at the invitation of kingdom’s Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah.

During the visit, Dhaka and Bandar Seri Begawan on Monday signed seven instruments for strengthening cooperation mainly in the fields of agriculture, fisheries, livestock, culture and sports, and LNG supply.

The instruments were signed after an official bilateral meeting held between Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Brunei's Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah at the Istana Nurul Iman, the official residence of the Sultan of Brunei, here.

Of the seven instruments, six are MoUs and one is the exchange of notes.

One Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is on scientific and technical cooperation in the field of agriculture, while another is on cooperation in the field of fisheries.

The other MoUs are on cooperation in the field of livestock; cooperation in the field of youth and sports; cooperation in the supply of LNG, and the exchange of notes on exemption of visa for holders of diplomatic and official passports.
