The Colombo – Beijing Friendship Forum 2016 was held in Colombo on Wednesday, September 14.

The forum is jointly organized by the Association for Sri Lanka – China Social and Cultural Cooperation with the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China, Mentougou District People’s Government of Beijing and the Beijing People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries. The forum was held to develop the cultural, educational and economical fields of the country.

Minister of Petroleum and Petroleum Gas, Chandima Weerakkody stated that they will promote President Xi Jinping’s initiation of the Silk Route and the belt.

He added that about 65 countries alongside the belt can be benefited if the concept of Xi Jinping is promoted. The Sri Lankan government has actively implemented initial steps towards it, so once investment is brought into the economic zone, Sri Lanka can reap the best economic benefit.

He went on to note that presently under President Sirisena’s regime China- Sri Lanka friendship moves towards a strongest possible level.

The forum which is held annually both in Colombo and Beijing was graced by the Director of the Mentougou District People’s Government of Beijing Luo Bin.
