Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina arrived at Rome on Sunday on a four-day official visit to Italy to join the upcoming meeting of the Rome-based International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) as one of its keynote speakers at the invitation of IFAD President Gilbert F Houngbo. An Emirates flight carrying Hasina and her entourage landed at Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport at 6:50pm local time (BdST 11:50am) via Dubai. Bangladesh Ambassador to Italy Abdus Sobhan Sikder and IFAD Vice President Claudia Richter received the prime minister at the airport. Earlier in the day, Hasina’s flight had started from Dhaka’s Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 10:05am. When she reached Dubai International Airport for a 90-minute stopover, Bangladesh Ambassador to UAE Muhammad Imran had received her. Finance Minister AMA Muhith, Agriculture Minister Matia Chowdhury and Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali are accompanying the prime minister. During the visit, she will be staying at the Parco Dei Principi Grand Hotel in Rome. On Monday morning, the prime minister will go to the Vatican City to meet Pope Francis. She will also have a meeting with Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin and visit the Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter's Basilica. In the evening, Hasina will join a dinner to be hosted by the Bangladesh ambassador in Rome. On Tuesday, the prime minister will attend the inaugural session of the Governing Council of IFAD and present her keynote paper. The theme of this year's council is 'From fragility to long-term resilience: Investing in sustainable rural economies.' Later, she will attend a lunch to be hosted by the IFAD president in honour of keynote speakers. In the evening, she will join a community reception arranged by the local unit of Awami League. The prime minister is scheduled to return home on February 16.
