The First Round of Senior Officials’ Talks between Sri Lanka and Australia was held recently at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Colombo.

The Senior Officials’ Talks between the two countries served as the first formal process to comprehensively review the bilateral relationship spanning over six decades. The talks broadly focused on bilateral trade, investment and economic diplomacy, development partnership, Sri Lanka’s reconciliation process, including regional and multilateral issues. Identifying new areas of cooperation under Australia’s future development assistance priorities for Sri Lanka and the Sri Lankan Government’s new policies for growth and development, both sides agreed to further build on the added momentum in the bilateral partnership, follow-up on the discussions and regularly review progress.

The next Senior Officials’ Talks will be held in the first quarter of 2017.

The Australian delegation was led by Ric Wells, Deputy Secretary of Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Sri Lanka delegation by Ranjith Uyangoda, Additional Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
