Message from Ambassador Dr. Palitha Kohona
Sri Lanka and China enjoy a close bilateral relationship which has been strengthened considerably in recent times. It is a relationship that has prospered over two millennia, nurtured by incessant trade, religious and social exchanges. Buddhism played a central role in this relationship.
It is now time to convert this reassuring comfort level to trade and investment benefits for Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka also aspires to eliminate poverty and achieve prosperity. China has been generous and forthcoming in supplying us with vaccines and also helping us financially. Against this background, it is for the two countries to further consolidate the reassuring bilateral relationship for attracting significant Chinese investments to Sri Lanka and increasing our exports to China.
Best wishes for the success of the Eurasia Commodity and Trade Expo !
Dr. Palitha Kohona
Ambassador of Sri Lanka
