It says the session seeks to further strengthen bilateral engagements by providing an opportunity to discuss issues pertinent to the socio-economic development of both countries including trade and investment, agriculture, health, mining, environment as well as tourism. 

The release states that the 6th JPCC will also take stock of progress made on the implementation of existing bilateral cooperation agreements between the two countries. 

The first two days of the session will be dedicated to a meeting of senior officials with the ministerial segment slated for the last day. Ends
