Top US Trade official Michael J. Delaney is visiting Sri Lanka next week for continuing discussions on the labour rights petition against Sri Lanka.

Michel Delaney, Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for South Asia, is the first-high level US official to visit Colombo after the US resolution on Sri Lanka was passed on Thursday at the UN Human Rights Council session in Geneva.

When we queried from the additional secretary of the Industries and commerce Ministry Janaka Sugathadas with this regard, he stated that it is another round of a pre planned discussion which is held once a year.

After a one-year break owing to a suspension of US GSP concessions to Sri Lanka and many other countries the concessions were resumed in January this year.
