Lankan envoy invites international community to join hands with SL


Sri Lanka’s Acting High Commissioner in the UK, P. M. Amza invited Sri Lanka’s friends in the international community to join hands with Sri Lanka in its rebuilding endeavours.

He said this at a luncheon reception hosted by the Sri Lankan High Commission in London recently.

The reception, which was attended by the London based diplomatic corps, British Members of Parliament and government officials, Sri Lankan expatriates, British friends and well wishers.

During the post independence era, Sri Lanka has been able to build on what the British had left in all these fields. Sri Lanka’s political relationship with the UK has seen its ups and downs, but the friendship is time-tested, he said.

"Our economic relations have continued to flourish. UK is the second largest export market, the fourth largest investor, and the second largest tourism generating country, for Sri Lanka. A sizable number of Sri Lankans visit the UK for the purposes of education annually which is testimony to the upward trend in the area of people to people contact between our two countries," the Acting High Commissioner further said.
