Ambassador of Poland to Sri Lanka Adam Burakowski will be the Special Guest Speaker at a Session on ‘Bilateral Trade between Sri Lanka & Poland’ organised by the National Chamber of Commerce of Sri Lanka, on Wednesday, 26 February from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the National Chamber Auditorium, No. 450, D.R. Wijewardena Mawatha, Colombo 10.

The main items exported from Sri Lanka to Poland in 2018 were: tea, valued at $ 20 million; belts, harnesses and binders, valued at $ 14.4 million; innerwear garments, valued at $ 8.6 million; ready-made garments, valued at $ 8.1 million; and pneumatic tyres and related accessories, valued at $ 5.7 million.
