China hails Sri Lanka's rapid post war progress


The Chinese government on Saturday hailed what it noted as considerable progress following the end of the conflict in Sri Lanka. Chinese Ambassador to Sri Lanka, Wu Jianghao, speaking at the opening of the second phase of a Chinese funded highway, said that notable development can be seen in the entire country.

Wu said that over the past two years since he has been ambassador to Sri Lanka, he was able to personally witness the development of the country, which was not confined to capital Colombo. "People used to ask me if Sri Lanka is a country which is not progressing. I tell them Sri Lanka is progressing at a rapid pace, "he said.

The Chinese ambassador said that the opening of the second phase of the southern highway will help further boost the economy and tourism in Sri Lanka.
