15 December 2017 - 151   - 0

The Australian High Commissioner, Bryce Hutchesson,opened a photographic exhibition at the Hall de Galle recently celebrating 70 years of development cooperation between Australia and Sri Lanka. The exhibition highlights how Sri Lankans have benefited from the humanitarian, health, education and employment projects delivered by Australian aid.

“Partnerships with all levels of government, civil society, the private sector and NGOs have been central to the success of these programs”  Mr Hutchesson was quoted as saying in a statement. The exhibition also captures the future of Australia’s development cooperation in Sri Lanka.


“Many of our new programs focus on partnering with the private sector in innovative ways to create more and better jobs and opportunities for all Sri Lankans, especially women” said Mr Hutchesson. The exhibition also celebrates, with a series of select portraits, the significant contribution Sri Lankans have made to Australian society. “These portraits showcase just a small representation of the large and vibrant Sri Lankan community that has contributed so significantly and positively to Australia’s multicultural life,”  Mr Hutchesson was quoted as saying in a statement.

The exhibition is open to the public till December 16 at the Hall de Galle, Baladaksha Mw, Galle Town.
