The Sri Lanka-Thailand Business Council (SLTBC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Chamber of Commerce and Board of Trade of Thailand (BOT) during an interactive business meeting at its Head office in Bangkok recently.

The Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce and Board of Trade of Thailand, Kalin Sarasin and President of the Sri Lanka-Thailand Business Council, Rizan Nazeer signed the MoU.

Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to Thailand Kshenuka Seneviratne and Thailand Ambassador to Sri Lanka Chulamanee Chartsuwan, Thai Board of trade members and SLTBC executive members were also present.

Sarasin said that there are few Thai investments in Sri Lanka and with the signing of the MoU, the Thai Board of Trade and Chamber of Commerce will play a productive role in further strengthening trade and economic relations between the two countries and will share the information with their members which is over 100,000.

Sri Lanka is the fourth largest trading partner of Thailand among Asian countries and the signing of this MoU is another milestone in furthering the connectivity of two countries, he said.

President of the Sri Lanka-Thailand Business Council, Rizan Nazeer said that the MoU between the two organisations will lay a solid foundation for business cooperation and would be mutually beneficial for both countries.

There are significantly large Thai investments in Sri Lanka and he invited members of the Chamber of Commerce and Board of Trade of Thailand to make more investments in Sri Lanka. The recent Government decision to introduce a visa-free period of six months as a pilot project for certain countries including Thailand will be an added point to considered by Thai tour operators to enhance religious tourism to Sri Lanka which is low at present.
