President Mahinda Rajapaksa addressed the opening ceremony of the Global Services Forum Beijing Summit this morning at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China.

 

President Rajapaksa said in his speech that as Asian countries transform to become service-driven economies, it is important to work towards creating greater synergies.

 

The President, who is on a four-day state visit to China, explained how Sri Lanka’s economic development initiatives are closely linked to the reconciliation process undertaken by his administration.

 


Highlighting Sri Lanka’s strategic geographical location, liberal economic policies and political stability, President Rajapaksa said the services sectors are at the forefront of the government’s strategy.

 


Speaking about the long history of China’s economic role in the region and throughout the world, President Rajapaksa said trading with the Asian giant has been crucial for many nations throughout the ages.

 

The Global Services Forum is jointly organized by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, China’s Ministry of Commerce and the People’s Government of Beijing.
