A promotional seminar on ‘Sri Lanka Expo’ was recently held at the Embassy of Sri Lanka in Tokyo with the participation of over 50 importers in Japan.



Ambassador Admiral Wasantha Karannagoda in his opening remarks stated that the ‘Sri Lanka Expo’ would be an ideal opportunity for the Japanese business community to expand their businesses with Sri Lanka not only in the trade of goods, but also in areas such as investment and service sectors such as tourism.  The Ambassador further stated that Sri Lanka has the best products to offer the world, being tea, apparel, gemstones, spices and natural rubber. The Seminar included a presentation by M. Somasena, First Secretary (Commercial) of the Embassy.  Many participants showed keen interest in visiting Sri Lanka with a view to sourcing products which include tea, spices, fish (tuna) and fisheries products, fruit and dried fruit, vegetables, processed food, gem and jewellery and coir products from Sri Lanka.

 ‘Sri Lanka Expo’ is being promoted in Japan through many other promotional events being held in the country.

Another promotional seminar is due to be held in January 2012.
