During the summit:

  • The two leaders jointly inaugurated the Chilahati-Haldibari rail link, which would connect the borders of the two neighbouring countries. The rail route lies between Haldibari in West Bengal and Chilahati in Bangladesh. It is re-opened after a gap of 55 years. The railway line has been defunct after rail links between India and then East Pakistan snapped in 1965.
  • Both the leaders also digitally inaugurated the digital exhibition in the honour of Mahatma Gandhi and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rehman.
  • The Indian side also released a postal stamp to commemorate Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
  • Apart from this, the two sides signed 7 MoUs and agreements in various fields.
