New Zealand High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Grahame Morton with Finance Minister
One of the leading world milk industrialists, New Zealand, said that it will extend its full assistance to develop the milk production sector in Sri Lanka.
New Zealand High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Grahame Morton said that his country expects to provide Sri Lanka new technology, industry expertise and certain grants to enable the island to improve its milk production.
Morton told this to Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake during a meeting between the two held on September 19 at the Finance Ministry.
During the conversation with Morton, Karunanayake stated that Sri Lanka was distanced away from the rest of the world in the past but it is currently open to the world due to the friendly policies of the good governance administration. The minister also pointed out that New Zealand’s willingness to assist Sri Lanka is one of the clear evidences of the current government’s flexible policies. The proposed tour of New Zealand by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe that is scheduled for October was also discussed during the meeting between Morton and Karunanayake.
