Indian Finance and Corporate Affairs Minister Arun Jaitley had proposed an Indian investors’ forum in Colombo, sources close to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday.
Minister had made this proposal when he met Prime Minister Wickremasinghe last morning in Delhi.
Wickremasinghe had therefore instructed Development Strategies and International Trade Minister Malik Samarawickrama to organise the forum.
Indo-Lanka joint cooperation on economic affairs is underway with both Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and his Indian counterpart agreeing for greater economic ties between the two countries during Wickremesinghe’s two-day official visit to India.
