SL to sign FTA with China before CHOGM
TUESDAY, 17 SEPTEMBER 2013 11:41
The government said today it is optimistic of signing a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with China before November 2013.
Investment Promotions Minster Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena speaking at a Board of Investment (BOI) press conference today said that the government expects to sign the agreement before the commencement of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) to be held in Colombo, in November this year.(Dilina Kulathunga)
My personal note:
A Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with China will help the Sri Lankan economy immensely.
We have to wait and see what items will be added by both sides on the trade list.
I believe Tea, Gems, Rubber, spices will be among the long list. Sri Lanka also imports a multitude of products from China….
