  SINGAPORE, March 12 (Xinhua) -- Visiting Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her Singaporean counterpart Lee Hsien Loong witnessed here Monday the signing of two memoranda of understandings (MOUs) which will boost air connectivity and business opportunities between the two countries.

  Hasina arrived in Singapore Sunday for her first official visit to the city-state.

  The two sides inked the Singapore-Bangladesh Air Services Agreement, which will allow passenger and cargo services between both countries to be expanded.

  Another agreement on public-private partnership was signed to help Singapore companies, including SMEs, enter the the Bangladesh market, which Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said will facilitate more investments by Singapore companies in Bangladesh, particularly in the power, connectivity and infrastructure sectors.

  During her four-day visit, Hasina will also attend the Bangladesh-Singapore Business Forum and a business roundtable.
