Brunei Darussalam Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah will be visiting Bangladesh from October 13 to 15.
During his first state visit, he will hold meeting with President Md Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
The two countries may sign five memorandums of understanding (MoUs) on labour cooperation, energy, direct air service, sea farers and culture during his visit, officials concerned said.
“We are in the process of finalising the MoUs. We hope to complete it at the soonest,” a foreign ministry official said.
Foreign ministry officials said under the MoU on labour cooperation, Bangladesh wants that the Bangladeshi migrants get regular salary, minimum wage and insurance.
“We also want a joint working group that will meet every year, sort out the bilateral issues and address when needed,” the official said.
The direct air service is important to improve trade, he said.
