At a press briefing here on Monday, Bangladeshi Foreign Minister A.H. Mahmood Ali said Hasina's visit at the invitation of her Bhutanese counterpart is aimed at deepening bilateral relations and bolstering further economic cooperation with Bhutan.

Hasina is slated to hold meetings with Bhutanese King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay and discuss bilateral and regional issues.

According to the minister, the meetings will be followed by the signing of deals on removal of double taxation, agriculture, cultural affairs, use of Bangladesh's inland water by Bhutan, standards of products and land given to Bangladesh for establishing a permanent embassy.

Hasina is expected to unveil the foundation stone of the new chancery of the Bangladeshi embassy in Hejo where Bhutan has given a piece of land.

During the visit, Hasina will also attend an international conference on autism on Wednesday, the minister said.
