The 7th round of Bangladesh-India Joint Consultative Commission (JCC) meeting is scheduled to be held in New Delhi on Sunday to discuss various bilateral issues. 

Bangladesh Foreign Minister Dr. A. K. Abdul Momen and Indian External Affairs Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar will co-chair the meeting, Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) sources said. 

Momen arrived in New Delhi on Saturday to join the JCC, a first physical meeting convened since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, with the previous edition held virtually in 2020.

On his arrival in New Delhi yesterday afternoon, the Foreign Minister was received by Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Muhammad Imran and high officials from the Indian Ministry of External Affairs.

"The JCC will review the entire gamut of bilateral relations, including cooperation in the wake of Covid-19," the officials said. 

However, a MEA statement said that the issues including border management, security, trade and investment, connectivity, energy, water resources, development partnership and regional and multilateral issues will also be discussed.

As part of his three-day India visit, Foreign Minister Momen will join a function styled "Interactive Business Meeting" being jointly organised by Bangladesh High Commission in New Delhi and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
