Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said in a Facebook post that the Sri Lanka-Singapore Free Trade Agreement will hopefully be completed this year.

Lee expressed his hopes in a post stating he had dinner with Sri Lankan counterpart Ranil Wickremesinghe and his wife last night.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had stopped over in Singapore on the way home from an official visit in Australia.

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said that he was invited to visit Sri Lanka.

Minister for Trade and Industry S Iswaran had said last July when the agreement to start talks was signed that Sri Lanka offers good potential for Singapore companies looking to tap opportunities in new markets.

Bilateral trade between the two countries was 2.05 billion Singapore Dollars in 2015.
