President Maithripala Sirisena has left for India this morning(Mar. 10) and later scheduled to visit Japan from 12th of March to 17th of March.

At the joint invitation of Indian Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi  and  French President Emanuel Macron,  President Sirisena will undertake an official visit to India  from 10-11 March 2018  to participate at  the First Conference of the International  Solar Alliance Founding Members, which will be convened on 11th of March, in New Delhi, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
 
Over thirty-two Heads of Government and high-level delegates are scheduled to attend the ISA Conference.

Sri Lanka became a founding member of the International Solar Alliance on 12th of February 2018.
 
The major objective of the International Solar Alliance is to enable better harnessing of solar energy as an alternative energy source and to address the specific solar technology deployment needs, of solar resource-rich countries, located between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. 
 
The ISA, by this initiative, further aims to address the gaps in the solar energy manufacturing eco-system and to ensure universal energy access, energy equity, and affordability that are common issues facing most of the solar resource-rich countries.
 
The Government of Sri Lanka joined the ISA in keeping with its policy declaration to prepare the groundwork for the country to fulfil the basic energy requirements of the people through renewable energy sources. 

Meanwhile, after the conclusion of the visit to India, at the invitation of the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, President Maithripala Sirisena will undertake a State visit to Japan from 12 to 17 March 2018.
During his stay in Japan, President Sirisena is scheduled to have an Imperial Audience with His Majesty, Emperor Akihito on 13th of March, and on the next day, he will meet Prime Minister Abe for summit talks. 
 
Following talks, the Japanese Premier will host the Sri Lankan President to a State dinner. 
 
The two leaders will discuss matters of mutual interest to deepen cooperation between Sri Lanka and Japan.
 
A Yen Loan Agreement between the Government of Sri Lanka and the Japan International Cooperation Agency is to be signed during the visit for implementing the Health and Medical Service Improvement Project.
 
President Sirisena will attend a business meeting organized by the Japan External Trade Organization, which will be co-hosted by the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and the Tokyo Chamber of Commerce and Industry. During the State visit, the President will also meet with the Sri Lankan community in Japan.
