High level visits

Relations witnessed a significant boost when Mikhail Myasnikovich became the first Belarus Prime Minister to pay an official visit to Bangladesh in November 2012.[1][2]

Cooperation

The two countries have signed agreements for cooperation on various fields such as trade, education, agriculture, technology, and defense.[3][4][5]

Trade

The first agreement on trade and economic cooperation between the two countries was signed in 2007 aimed at expanding bilateral trade.[6] A more comprehensive agreement was reached in May 2012 when a Bangladesh delegation led by former foreign minister Dipu Moni paid a visit to Minsk. Titled "Intergovernmental agreement on trade and economic cooperation", the agreement proved to be effective when the amount of bilateral trade grew rapidly in 2013.[7][8]

Defense

Military cooperation between the two countries dates back to 2005. It received major reinforcements through an agreement on transfer of crucial defense technologies which was signed by the two countries during Mikhail Myasnikovich's official visit to Dhaka in 2012. The areas of cooperation in this field include "production and modernization of military equipment and control, communication and electromagnetic warfare systems.." In 2013, a joint commission was also formed in this regard.[9]
