President Maithripala Sirisena, who arrived in London on Sunday night to attend Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) 2018, is scheduled to address the Commonwealth Business Forum tomorrow.

Sirisena has also been invited to deliver the keynote address at the forum regarding achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), his officials said.

The Commonwealth Business Forum is an integral part of the CHOGM and brings together the businesses critical to trade and investment leadership with government to debate the issues facing their countries in 2018 and beyond.

Meanwhile, Sirisena is scheduled to meet British Prime Minister Theresa May and also to hold discussions with several key officials who will be participating in the CHOGM, they said.

The theme of this year’s CHOGM is ‘Towards a Common Future’ and special attention will be given to areas such as prosperity, security, fairness and sustainability to achieve the goals of the Commonwealth countries.

During his stay, Sirisena will also attend the special celebration of the 92nd birthday of Queen Elizabeth.(Sunil Jayasiri in London)

    No. He will use a teleprompter like the former King and deliver it in Latin.

    Reading a speech or delivering, either way its a catastrophe.
