[quote]As you may be aware, that the Government of Sri Lanka would be implementing the free trade agreement with China in end 2014. During our visit to Japan, Dr. P.B. Jayasundara, Secretary, Ministry of Finance and Planning announced that the next Free Trade Agreement would be with Japan. We presume that it would be initiated in 2015. Therefore, in preparation to ensure that we look after the interests of our membership to further enhance their trading activities with Japan, we will be carrying out comprehensive study on the potential areas of items to include free trade agreement between Sri Lanka and Japan. Inputs will be sourced from our membership and we will prepare the report that would be presented to the Government of Sri Lanka for consideration in the future.[/quote]
