Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe’s upcoming visit to Beijing is being eagerly awaited by the Chinese leadership as a timely opportunity to strengthen bilateral relations.

Chinese Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Liu Zhenmin has assured Ministers Malik Samarawickrama and Sagala Rathnayaka that Chinese authorities are committed to achieving significant outcomes from the PM’s visit next month.

The BOI statement said the meeting among the ministers in Beijing focused on the Prime Minister’s visit and economic issues of mutual interest.

It is expected a Joint Statement would be issued at the end of the visit summarizing the issues covered.

These are likely to include cooperation documents involving China’s assistance to Sri Lanka such as the support to build a kidney hospital as well as assurance related to China’s Maritime Silk Route Initiative.

Parallel events have also being planned to promote Investment, Trade and Tourism during the Prime Minister’s visit.
