Both chiefs are expected to arrive in Dhaka on June 30 and are scheduled to visit Rohingya camps on July 2.
Previously, the Finance Minister said that the two are to visit the camps in Cox’s Bazar during the visit.
WB is planning to give between $400 and $500 million in aid in phases for Rohingyas in Cox’s Bazar, Muhith said.
