"China is the largest defense hardware supplier to Bangladesh. So talks on enhancement of the defense cooperation will be in the agenda," Moni told a news conference, without giving details.
Bangladesh will soon add two new Chinese frigates to boost its naval fleet and increase its number of frigates to seven, a defense official told Reuters.
Officials say boosting naval capabilities is important for Bangladesh to maintain surveillance in its territory in the Bay Bengal, rich in natural resources and hydro-carbons.
Bangladesh briefly deployed naval ships in a disputed part of the bay after Myanmar began exploring for oil and gas there in October 2008.
Bangladesh withdrew the ships after Myanmar stopped the exploration, when China, a friend to both the neighboring countries, expressed deep concern.
Bangladesh last added a frigate, built by South Korea, in 2001, when Hasina was also prime minister.
He will also discuss regional, international and bilateral issues including economic and technical cooperations, Moni said.
