* U.S. "3C" Trade Mission to visit Sri Lanka tomorrow
Wed, Feb 6, 2013, 01:15 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 06, Colombo: A multi-sector U.S. Trade Mission organized by the U.S. Department of Commerce will travel to Colombo February 7-8 after visiting Chennai and Cochin, India as a part of the "3C" exploratory program.

The 3C Trade Mission, the first U.S. trade mission since the end of the conflict, includes companies in the education sector, design consulting services and engineering, food industries, healthcare, airline support, and infrastructure development.

The United States is the largest single country market for Sri Lankan exports, and the U.S. Embassy is seeking increased bilateral trade.

"Enhanced trade would further strengthen our economic ties, create opportunities for fruitful joint ventures and distributorships, and bring quality U.S. products to Sri Lankan consumers," U.S. Embassy Economic Counselor Allison V. Areias-Vogel explained.

The mission is designed to foster commercial engagement and lasting relationships by creating a forum to discuss prospective business opportunities and to explore avenues for collaboration.

The participating U.S. companies on this mission, most of which are new to Sri Lanka, will discuss the investment climate and the potential within specific sectors with representatives from the Government of Sri Lanka, the U.S. Embassy, and the local business community.

The U.S. Embassy has partnered with the American Chamber of Commerce in Sri Lanka to schedule one-to-one meetings with the visiting delegation. Local companies in Sri Lanka that are interested in contacting the trade delegation can email the U.S. Commercial Service office in Colombo: CommercialColombo@state.gov.
