Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed has said the first meeting with the US on Ticfa will be held in April.
After more than a decade of wrangling, Bangladesh entered into the Trade and Investment Co-operation Forum Agreement (Ticfa) with the US in Nov last year.
US ambassador Dan W Mozena called on the minister in his office on Wednesday.
“A fruitful discussion has been held with the US envoy over the Ticfa, GSP and the Bali Conference commitments on duty-free access. We will cooperate with each other,” Tofail Ahmed told the media after the meeting.
“A US delegation is probably due on Apr 6 to discuss Ticfa. US investors will also accompany them. They will have discussions with our private sector investors,” he added.
He also informed the press about a meeting on Feb 13 between envoys of five countries and the secretaries of commerce, foreign and labour that will focus on the European market.
