The special feature of this conference is that it will also be the first multilateral summit since its takeover by the army last year. Myanmar’s leader General Min Aung Huling will also attend. At the same time, Sri Lanka could not host the summit in 2021 due to Corona infection. However, last year the foreign ministers of BIMSTEC held a virtual meeting. And to deal with common security threats in the region, the NSAs of the countries prepared a roadmap.
