Mon, Apr 28, 2014, 11:35 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 28, Colombo: Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa left for Bahrain Monday on a two-day state visit. This is the President's first visit to the country.

During the tour, the President will hold bilateral discussions with Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa, and the two countries are also scheduled to sign several memorandums of understanding on a number of different sectors, President's Media Unit said in a release.

The President is accompanied by a business delegation and will attend a meeting between Sri Lankan and Bahraini business communities.

The Sri Lankan delegation, comprising representatives from 27 Sri Lankan companies in various sectors, aims to explore business opportunities and increase private sector co-operation between the two countries, the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) has said.

The BCCI said it will hold a B2B session at its premises to enable the Bahraini business community to meet the delegation. BCCI chief executive Nabil Al Rahman Al Mahmoud has invited businessmen to take part in the bilateral meeting to be held on Tuesday.

As is customary, President Rajapaksa will also meet with the Sri Lankan community in Bahrain before conclusion of the visit.

Sri Lanka established formal diplomatic ties with Bahrain in 1992.
