Indian Foreign Secretary S.Jaishankar is to visit Sri Lanka with a business delegation this weekend, to promote Indian business and investment in accordance with the Narendra Modi government’s policy of using diplomacy to promote India’s trade and investment abroad.

Indian officials however made it clear that Jaishankar will not be discussing the proposed Economic and Technical Cooperation Agreement with Sri Lanka.

Foreign Secretary Jaishankar and his team will interact with top Sri Lankan officials and businessmen over three days on possibilities of collaboration and cooperation in a wide range of fields.

The Foreign Secretary will interact with the Sri Lankan leadership for discussions on possible possibilities of collaboration and cooperation in a number of sectors including power, highways, airport and hydrocarbon sector.
