German Ambassador to Sri Lanka Holger Seubert today expressed hope that Sri Lanka would ease the import restrictions so that the trade between Sri Lanka and Germany would be further strengthened.

He expressed these remarks when he called on Premier Mahinda Rajapaksa at the Wijerama residence.

“I expressed my hope that Sri Lanka will be able to ease import restrictions in the near future, thus bringing German-Sri Lankan trade back to normal,” he said.

“Sri Lanka today exports more than double the value of goods to Germany than the other way round, with this gap further widening,” the envoy underlined.

The discussion aimed at a number of specific topics, mainly on the controversial issue of import restrictions and its consequences to German-Sri Lankan trade.

The envoy also ensured the Prime Minister that Germany was here as a friend, ready to support whenever required.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Rajapaksa lauded the support of Germany to Sri Lanka in numerous fields. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    We can not remain as third world forever while the Western Countries, all of them built on the criminal exploitation of the third world for centuries as colonies, continue to remain as the prosperous first world. Import restrictions is a must for the third world as an incentive to start producing them themselves.

    Sri lanka is importing a very small amount of German exports. Why are they worried about it. They have no impact but we have to save our foreign currency.
