Trade can boost tourism between Palestine and Sri Lanka

Palestinian Ambassador Dr. Anwar Al-Agha met top officials of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC) this week and declared: “There is great potential for trade in garments, tea and agriculture between Sri Lanka and the State of Palestine.”

He also expressed hopes for improved tourism between the two countries, during the meeting with the chamber’s Secretary General/CEO Prema Cooray, Chief Operating Officer, Harin Malwatte and Chairman Mahen Dayananda.

A press release by the CCC said Al-Agha, keen on strengthening bilateral trade ties, spoke at length on the Palestine Investment Conference, scheduled to take place from May 21 to 23 at Bethlehem. Organized by IMF and World Bank, over 700 participants are expected to take part from the International Business Community representing the Middle East, Africa and Europe. This is the first business conference to be organized in Palestine.
