The Annual General Meeting of the Sri Lanka-Pakistan Friendship Association which was originally scheduled for 6 July at 4 p.m. at Padang Kew Road, Colombo 2, will now be re-scheduled to 13 July at 4 p.m. at the same venue, due to unavoidable circumstances. The inconvenience, if any, to members of the association is regretted. The Sri Lanka-Pakistan Friendship Association is one of the oldest friendship associations of Sri Lanka, which was established 63 years ago in 1950. The association has been able to establish itself as a useful platform, dedicated to the promotion of bilateral relationship and friendship between Pakistan and Sri Lanka. This relationship is not restricted to any one area or field, but it encompasses every aspect of bilateral cooperation i.e. people to people contacts, culture, education, health, etc. The association is endeavoring to promote cultures and traditions of both nations by supporting and encouraging cultural exchanges, celebrating events of national importance of both nations including National Days, Independence Days, etc. The SLPAFA also promotes various social welfare and fund raising activities, student exchanges and encourages students to obtain admissions into the recognised learning institutions for higher studies in Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
