When Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi lands in Bangladesh on Saturday, it will be historic, as he will be the first incumbent PM to visit the country after the settlement of the four-decade-long boundary dispute between the two neighbours.  

His visit comes a month after his government successfully resolved the 41-year-old dispute over the 4,000-km shared border between India and Bangladesh, through the Land Boundary Agreement (LBA).

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will accompany Modi in Bangladesh. 

This will also be Modi's first trip to the neighbouring nation after coming to power last May.

During the bilateral talks between Modi and Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the security situation on the border, human trafficking and drug smuggling along the border, and the resolution of the problem of enclaves are expected to figure prominently. 

Also in focus will be a coastal shipping agreement and a cooperative arrangement in the telecom sector, among others.  

Indian foreign secretary S Jaishankar has described Modi's upcoming visit as 'historic' following the conclusion of the Land Boundary Agreement. 

"With the settlement of the land boundary, and the earlier settlement of our maritime boundary, we have completely settled our boundary with Bangladesh, and that is, for a neighbour, an extremely important development," he said on Friday. 

Here is PM Modi's schedule for his Bangladesh trip that will last about 36 hours:
