The Traditional Handicrafts and Textiles entitled India – Sri Lanka Shilpakala Exhibition opened on Wednesday, March 23. The exhibition is organised by the Indian High Commission in Sri Lanka, in collaboration with the Ministry of External Affairs.

Shilpa Kala will showcase the best of traditional handicrafts from both countries. It will also emphasise the confluence of cultures that underlie the handicrafts traditions in both India and Sri Lanka.

The exhibition was inaugurated by the State Minister of International Trade Sujeewa Senasinghe and the High Commissioner of India Y.K Sinha. The exhibition will be held until March 27 at the BMICH.

State Minister of International Trade, Sujeewa Senasinghe requested from the public to show interest in agreements signed between Sri Lanka and India, since they will be beneficial to both nations.

He added that these agreements are not personal agreements which will benefit the Indian Premier, High Commissioner, or Premier Wickremesinghe.

Explaining further, he added that in the past agreements, Sri Lanka gained nearly 70 – 80 percent of the benefits. He went on to note that in normal trade, India would be benefited, but through the agreements much can be gained by opening markets of the two countries.
