Burma's deputy foreign minister, U Kyaw Thu, arrived in Dhaka on Sunday night accompanied by four high-level Burmese officials to attend Dhaka-Rangoon foreign secretary talks that began on Monday.
This is the second foreign secretary level annual consultation that is being held between Bangladesh and Burma.
Acting foreign secretary Mohammad Touhid Hossain told journalists after the conclusion of Dhaka-Rangoon bilateral talks in Dhaka that Burma is considering leasing out at least 50,000 acres of land in its Rakhine state to Bangladeshi private entrepreneurs for 'contract farming'.
The two neighbors also discussed issues over the proposed tri-nation link road connecting Bangladesh, Burma and China.
