Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is all set to leave for Japan on May 26 to attend the ‘G7 Outreach Programme’.
The programme is scheduled to begin on the same day at Ise-Shima, the holiest among all of Japan’s shrines.
Confirming the matter, an official of the Foreign Ministry on Tuesday said that Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali will brief the media on Prime Minister’s visit to Japan on Wednesday afternoon.
He will also brief the reporters about the Premier’s recent visit to Bulgarian capital Sofia.
Prime Minister’s visit to Japan is being given ‘high importance’ in Bangladesh as she is likely to have a number of meetings with various G7 leaders on the sidelines of the Summit.
Heads of state and government of Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Vietnam are also invited to the outreach meeting.
Sheikh Hasina is scheduled to return home on May 30.
