Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - BUSINESS NEWS -

Fi­nance and Mass Me­dia Min­is­ter Man­gala Sa­ma­raweera, who is cur­rently in Washington to at­tend the World Bank/ In­ter­na­tional Mone­tary Fund an­nual meet­ing, met with US Un­der Sec­re­tary for Po­lit­i­cal Af­fairs Am­bas­sador Thomas Shan­non at the US State Depart­ment.

Shan­non will visit Sri Lanka in Novem­ber 2017 to take part in the next round of the US/ Sri Lanka Part­ner­ship Di­a­logue, which was in­au­gu­rated in 2016 when Sa­ma­raweera was the For­eign Af­fairs Min­is­ter, for a reg­u­lar pol­icy con­sul­ta­tion de­signed to dis­cuss and iden­tify op­por­tu­ni­ties for co­op­er­a­tion across the full range of bi­lat­eral and regional is­sues.

The Part­ner­ship Di­a­logue demon­strates the con­sol­i­da­tion of co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the United States and Sri Lanka and serves to fur­ther strengthen and en­hance bi­lat­eral re­la­tions in the widest sense, through reg­u­lar and struc­tured en­gage­ment. Sa­ma­raweera was ac­com­pa­nied by Fi­nance Min­istry Se­nior Ad­viser Mano Tit­tawella, Charge d’ Af­faires of the Sri Lanka Em­bassy in USA, Prof. Gamini B. Keer­awella and Priyanga Wickramasinghe of the Sri Lankan Em­bassy in the USA.
