Sri Lanka's envoy to the United States, Jaliya Wickremasuriya said that Sri Lanka is pushing for stronger economic ties with the United States which will strengthen overall diplomatic relations between the two countries.

He added that in the future we should do more business with the US and take the relationship to the next level.

The US is Sri Lanka's biggest trading partner with 22% of the island's exports- mostly garments going to the American market.

US companies have been scouting for investment opportunities in the island's infrastructure development projects, tourism, outsourcing and energy sectors including oil refining.
