Minister of Development Strategies and International Trade, Malik Samarawickrama says that as a responsible government we should develop the country’s economy and sign Free Trade Agreements with India, Pakistan, China and Singapore.

He added that Sri Lanka should look at countries such as India where there is a huge population of 1.25 billion.

Currently, Thailand’s exports to India are around 5 billion US dollars, while Sri Lanka’s exports account only for around 700 US dollars despite a Free Trade Agreement with India.
