The fate and the form of the Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation ( BIMSTEC) biennial summit in Sri Lanka is uncertain amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The summit scheduled for September was expected to adopt a new charter.

Amid uncertainty regarding the summit, there have also been proposals to host the fifth summit virtually between September 10-15. The BIMSTEC meeting led by foreign secretaries of the seven member member nations on Wednesday could finalise the form and dates for the virtual summit.

“The meeting is also expected to give the final touches to the BIMSTEC charter which will be adopted at the summit,” said Shanker Das Bairagi, the foreign secretary, who is leading the Nepali delegation of the 21st senior officials.
