Mon, Sep 1, 2014, 10:56 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Sept 01, Colombo: The Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe has planned to undertake an official visit to Sri Lanka from 7th to 8th September 2014, at the invitation of President Mahinda Rajapaksa, External Affairs Ministry said today in a statement.

Prime Minister Abe will be accompanied by a high level delegation, which also includes business leaders from several Japanese companies, notably small and medium sized enterprises, ranging from infrastructure to food industries.

Japan has been a key partner in Sri Lanka's socio-economic development and the forthcoming official visit of Prime Minister Abe will be an important milestone in further enhancing bilateral relations, the Ministry said.

The Ministry recalled that President Rajapaksa paid an official visit to Japan in March 2013 to mark the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Sri Lanka and Japan.

The Ministry noted that it is 24 years since the last visit of a Japanese Prime Minister to Sri Lanka.

"The Government of Sri Lanka is confident that this visit will enable both countries to further consolidate and expand the existing robust relations, particularly in trade and economic cooperation," the Ministry said.
