Sri Lankan minister of development strategies and international trade Malik Samarawickrama recently invited Indian investors to enjoy the nation’s geographical advantage, port connectivity, preferential tariff access to large markets and competent human resource pool. He was addressing a business forum organised by Sri Lanka’s Board of Investment in Gujarat.

The forum was organised at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) in Ahmedabad.

Over 100 leading Indian businessmen from Gujarat representing diverse sectors participated in the forum, according to Sri Lankan media reports.

GCCI president Durgash V Buch said Gujarat and Sri Lanka can be partners in promoting agro-processing Industries, textile, petrochemicals, spices and tea.

Out of GCCI’s total member strength of 6,000, at least 1,000 deal with Sri Lanka on a regular basis in sectors like refractories, pharmaceuticals, apparel, plastic packaging, starch, petroleum and petro products, tea and other agro-products, he added. (DS)
