Japan to help boost local economy
Japan considers Sri Lanka as an attractive manufacturing station and
focuses on promoting trade, investment and tourism to boost the
country's economy. Japan would assist potential business partners to
establish trade linkages.
The 15th Joint Meeting of the Sri Lanka-Japan and Japan-Sri Lanka
Business Co-operation Committees will be a platform to develop networks
with the Japanese business delegation, said Embassy of Japan Deputy Head
of Mission, Kaoru Shimazaki.
The 15th Joint Meeting will be held on November 18-20 in Sri Lanka
and an over 30 member delegation is expected to visit the country
representing the sectors such as automobile, tourism, tea, construction,
ceramics, fertilizer, fibre and textile. Sri Lanka will target the US $
41 billion electronic market in India with the Japanese know-how.
"We are looking at the Indian market with the help of Japanese
technology," Sri Lanka-Japan and Japan-Sri Lanka Business Co-operation
Committees President Daya Weththasinghe said. SJ
