Former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is scheduled to arrive at Dhaka on Friday for a brief visit, which would be his second visit to Bangladesh after leaving the United Nations.

He will arrive at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 7am on Friday, to attend the 13th convocation of Brac University (BracU), reports UNB.

President Abdul Hamid is also scheduled to attend the convocation ceremony, which will be held at Army Stadium on Saturday afternoon.        

The former UN chief will also attend a lunch to be hosted by BRAC in his honor on Saturday.   

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen will hold a meeting with Ban Ki-moon, who is known as a very good friend of Bangladesh, at 11am on Saturday.

He will leave Dhaka at 6:30pm on the same day.

On July 2019, Moon attended the “Dhaka Meeting of the Global Commission on Adaptation” held in the capital. 

During his first visit to Bangladesh after his retirement from the UN, BRACU President and Vice Chancellor Prof Vincent Chang invited the former UN chief, who is currently the chairman of the Global Commission on Adaptation, to visit the university and energize students to participate further in the global arena.
