The programmes of the Maitri Dibash include speeches from heads of mission of Bangladesh and India, speeches from the chief guests of the country where the events would be held, cultural programmes, documentaries on Bangladesh-India relations and food exhibitions of two countries and receptions. Some missions will jointly organise photo exhibitions, seminars and webinars highlighting the historical ties between the two countries as part of the Maitri Dibash celebrations.
