Ambassador-designate of Sri Lanka to the European Union Grace Asirwatham met with Asia Pacific Region of the European External Action Service (EEAS) Managing Director Gunnar Wiegand following her recent assumption of duties in Brussels.

EEAS Managing Director Wiegand noted the positive trajectory in EU - Sri Lanka relations in the last few years and expressed confidence that these relations will continue to grow and be further strengthened. He particularly discussed with Ambassador Asirwatham ongoing cooperation in the political, security and economic spheres including the support being extended to Sri Lanka following the Easter Sunday attacks as well as ways and means to further expand bilateral trade through better utilisation of the GSP+ facility. They also discussed cooperation in multilateral fora and regional cooperation.

The EEAS Managing Director announced that he would visit Sri Lanka next year and co-chair the EU - Sri Lanka Joint Commission thereby elevating relations to a new level.
