According to President Renuka Jayamanne, the proposed Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will prosper the economic co-operation of both countries in the coming years. The support given by the Bangladeshi Government to develop Lanka’s apparel sector is note worthy.
Sri Lanka is also expected to be the Shipping and Logistics Hub which would benefit both these economies in the future.
The business council is planning to collaborate with various Bangladeshi institutes and key companies to strengthen economic ties further. The Sri Lankan agricultural sector could be upgraded by sharing experience between agricultural institutes of both countries at grassroots levels.
