Australia is committed to strengthening the friendship with Sri Lanka in the years to come.

The acting High Commissioner of Australia to Sri Lanka Tim Huggins said that Australia’s partnership with Sri Lanka is highly valued and an enduring friendship, based on a long shared history of cooperation as Commonwealth and Indian Ocean nations.

In a speech to mark Australia Day which falls today, Huggins said that Sri Lanka and Australia established diplomatic relations in 1947 and have built strong ties in education, trade and investment, migration, development and, perhaps most importantly, vibrant people to people links.

Huggins said Australia looks forward to working with the Sri Lankan government on its economic reform agenda to support further growth and development.

He also said Australia greatly values Sri Lanka’s constructive engagement and support in international fora, including the Indian Ocean Rim Association.
