On behalf of the Embassy of Sri Lanka I have the great pleasure
of felicitating the Thai- Sri Lanka Chamber of Commerce (TSLCC)
in Bangkok for the launching of its ‘electronic window’.
TSLCC marks another important step in revitalizing Thai-Sri Lanka
business and economic partnership. It will provide institutional
support for a growing and comprehensive framework of business
activities between the two countries. The Chamber and its founding
members should be complimented for their commitment and for projecting
the TSLCC to the Bangkok-based, as well as, Sri Lanka-based business
This institutional step comes in the wake of important high level
visits last year and this year, through which no less than six
ground-breaking Agreements have been proposed between the two
countries in the fields of Agriculture, Standards, Information
& Computer Technology, Investment Promotion, Preferential
Trade arrangements and Mutual Legal Assistance. The timing of
this new venture could not have been better. The launching of
this website at this juncture, therefore adds a vital new technology
dimension to the Chamber’s efforts. The site will provide the
necessary links in Bangkok and in Sri Lanka, further widening
the data base at the disposal of those who want to do business
with the two countries.
I would like
to congratulate the Chamber and wish their endeavours all success.
