The U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Stephen E. Biegun will visit here from October 14-16 to meet with senior government officials and reaffirm the United States-Bangladesh partnership.

“The Deputy Secretary’s engagements in Bangladesh will focus on advancing our common vision of a free, open, inclusive, peaceful and secure Indo-Pacific region with shared prosperity for all,” an US embassy press release said here this evening.

Biegun’s visit here will also focus on US-Bangladesh cooperation on COVID-19 response and recovery efforts and sustainable economic development, said the release.
